    If so, does it present any particular difficulties. I have four ounces of color matched acrylic enamel to touch up my engine bay where the spray can't reach due to its size. If it is possible, are there any particular airbrushes and needle sizes I should go with? Many thanks to you all.
    Best Regards,

    Yes he did LOL Yes if you reduce it correctly and use either a .35 or bigger nozzle size.

    My mistake, Gents. I am currently suffering from information and reading overload. And thanks again Herb. I promise I won't ask a third time :)

    Hey Guys! I took the plunge for better AND worse, lol. Just bought a Badger anthem and a 1/5 hp compressor. Lots of questions to follow I'm sure in the near future. It should all be delivered sometime next week. I want to heartily thank you all for your help, support and tolerance. I am very excited about where this will take me and hopefully having a nice 'new' engine bay :)
    So, away we go!
    Have a great weekend,
