Has anyone ever used a Wagner power painter to paint their rig? Will these work? Will you get the proper dispersal of paint out of the gun or will it be too globy? I was just wondering this because I was walking through Walmart tonight in the paint aisle and noticed them on the wall. Of course the though popped into my head about how well it work would. I just didn't know if you could use it on thinned out paint.

Probly not, it depends on how good of a paint job you want. I have an auto body paint gun and a "household", paint gun. At least that is what the maker; Cambell-Hausfeld calls it. Even household latex paint has to be thinned for this, "household", gun. You have to get proper atomization of the paint for good application. The Wagner is built for thicker paint and will probly drip and splatter with the automotive paints.
Besides paint guns for compressors are cheap, its the compressor that isn't but when you do bite the bullet it is well worth it. Can't live without my impact wrench!
