Yes, it took a LOT of elbow work, but it really does look nice! I’ve painted a few cars, which means anyone can paint cars! An airless sprayer will be difficult to spray a finely atomized mist, but it may be possible if you use more reducer in the paint and spray additional coats.
Is it better to use a paint sprayer or roller?

Are power paint rollers worth it?

Can you run paint thinner through a paint sprayer?
Often one can run some lacquer thinner through the pump for awhile and get out most of the old dried debris if the sprayer does not have too much in it. If your sprayer has a flexible intake tube, flex it, move it around while running the thinner through it to try to dislodge the dried material inside it.

Do I need to thin paint for airless sprayer?
They’re extremely viscous, so whenever you spray them with a handheld, HVLP, or small airless sprayer, you need to thin them down. That’s true when you’re using anything other than a big airless unit. If you’re using a handheld or HVLP system to paint, you’re probably going to have to use as much as 20-30% water.
Is airless or HVLP better?
Vertical spraying: An HVLP is better for vertical spraying small projects than an airless, especially if you’re new to spraying. You’re far less likely to get paint runs because you’re spraying at a much lower pressure. An airless cranked up to 2,000 PSI throws a lot of paint onto the surface quickly.
