I used it once and did have a little bit of trouble ended repainting the body twice dirt and moisture seem to really magnify

In short, use 30-50 PSI, spray a mist coat, blow dry, mist coat, blow dry, mist coat, blow dry, mist coat, blow dry..you get the picture.

Search Youtube for numerous videos on how to airbrush Autoair, Wicked, etc.

I use it a lot and never use a blowdryer, carefully building up coats should be enough. The nice thing with Auto air is that when things go wrong, you rinse of the paint to the primer and can start rightaway with a clean sheet :)



Oh, and I always mix it with reducer
