So after trying to get some touch up paint squared away on my trunk lid, I decided the brush was not cutting it. I could see lines and overall uneveness. So, since I already bought a big ass bottle of touch up paint from paintscratch I started thinking of alternatives. $400 for a paint job was out of the question, and placing another order for a rattle can from paintscratch seemed like a waste. Then it hit me:

This thing is freaking awesome. It comes with everything you need to get started; brush, lines, propellant (so you dont have to hook it up to a compressor), compressor adapter (in case you do), and two bottles to hold paint.

The spray was soo even and clean. Very easy to use. I have never used an airbrush before, but after testing out my skills on a couple of boxes, plastics, etc I went to town. Very easy to get the hang of. There are kits out there that have some increased functions, like internal mixing and different size nozzle but I was on a budget and for under $30 was awesome compared to other options I was looking at.

Overall I give it a 9/10. The only drawbacks to this particular model is that it didn't handle the clearcoat from paintscratch to well. Came out chunky. Also, from what I can tell you cannot buy different nozzles to control spray size. If you are looking to change size, for about $10 more you can get the one that has 3 different nozzles.

Hey, thanks for the good review of this. I'm looking to do whole lot of touch-up on my p11 so I'm wondering, is this pretty much ready-to-go kit? Just buy this and matching paint and it's good to go? I could get a rattle can clears (which I've used on my other cars with excellent results) so I think I'm good with CC. Just worried about using rattle can for paint. Thanks in advance.

Yeah, brushwise this is good to go. Like you said, just get the color code paint and throw it in the bottle that comes in the kit. Like you said, get a spraycan of clear coat for that part. If you need to adjust the size of the spray, you may want to look at spending a little more for a kit with adjustable nozzles.
