Guys I come to you with a question. The wife and I are about to sell the house(or put it on the market). She is on this kick about painting everyroom and every piece of trim. It’s all pretty much done accept for the doors(6 of them). These doors are 6 panel simulated wood grain(the good stuff ya know..HAHAHA). To any extent she is absolutely against the idea of rolling of brushing the doors. Mainly for the time and effort that will need to be placed upon each door. Naturally like a good woodworking husband and an avid plotter I introduce the idea of spraying them. This will be the perfect chance to pick up that Earlex 3000 spray system I’ve been wanting. Has anyone sprayed latex paint in the HVLP systems before. Is it pretty easy to do or more trouble then other options? Also is the finish better then what I could get with a brush or roller? Besides the Earlex system what materials (needles thinners and such) would I need to make this dream… ah i mean needed tool a reality.
