Im thinking about paint my van in Battleship Grey problem is the paint ive got is brush paint.

Q1 What thinners should I use to get it through a spray gun and what rato/mix.

Q2 Can I mix in a hardener to make sure the paint sets.........hard!!

I may just resort to the roller method and flat it afterwoods but would like less work by spraying.

Hi do you know what type of paint it is, should be 2k if so mix with hardner 2:1 (2 parts paint) and 10% thinner but it may be a type of commercial paint which you have to heat up b4 spraying, but if its new paint its more likely to be 2k

Hope this helps Good luck

Not sure what paint it is, dont think is 2k, the tin is very unhelpful just gives the hazard lableing.

try a tester mixing 2 to 1 with cellulose thinners to make sure it does'nt separate if it does'nt try it through the gun and see if it goes off ok.
