Earlex Spray Station 6900

I have an Earlex  three stage turbine Spray Station 6900 .
Would I be able to use it to apply your finishing system?

If I can, would there be any noticeable differences in the final finishes??

I have the equipment to spay Awl Grip and Emron but I thing I would like to do my airiplane with the Station 6900.

Have never heard of that unit.  If it sprays other paints it will spray our paints as well. You must experiment with nozzle size and fluid needle settings to find out what works best.  I always said if you could get a squirt gun to atomize paint you could figure out how to paint an airplane with it.  The biggest concern with turbine spray systems is heat so as long as it doesn't get the air too hot you should be fine.

Typically turbine spray systems do not produce as nice of a finish as a high quality air compressor powered spray guns.  Results always vary because painting is mostly an art not a science and any one can screw anything up regardless of the equipment being used.  That is why we stress over and over to practice first before painting any airplane parts.
