Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff Goes on thick, fills imperfections, and sands easily. It works as expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff Works well but only when using the right size tip. I've struggled with anything less than a 2.5. I've also learned that the fresher, the easier to spray and I only had a 30 minute spray time before I had to clean my gun. The downside is that it's pricy. However, it's actually a bit cheaper than other brands
