Thanks Rich. I’ll give it a shot in the morning. I’ll try it with the mix and then straight sealcoat and see which one gets it done better. I have the mix because I was planning on wiping it on. I’ve had the spray system for a couple of weeks now and a little fear has kept me from using it.

If you haven’t used it yet, I strongly recommend practicing with it for a while before you tackle spraying your project. Use some water for the spray medium and get some brown paper to spray against so you can actually see the pattern and wetness.

There are only a couple of settings on the gun that matter, one is the flow and the other is the spread of the fan. Your gun will either have a knob for fan spread or you’ll control it by turning the air cap ring on the front of the gun. The flow control is on the back of the gun. Turn it completely clockwise and then open it back a half turn at a time until you get the flow you want.

It’s easy once you get the hang of it. It’s just a matter of time and experience.
