Just curious how people are painting their exterior without investing in a sprayer? Tricks?

A neighbor has volunteered to lend me his sprayer after seeing me do some stuff with rattle cans. Nothing wrong with some good old fashioned sympathy

Sprayers can be rented by the hour or the day.

Another friend connected me with a local body shop that will spray it with my paint and my masking labor for their hourly rate and I can get a cash discount if I use the real folding green stuff. I will hold off for a month and see if I come up with the funds since that will give the best results without being overly expensive. I already did the primer with rattle cans.

After we stripped our trailer down and redid the frame, we did the body work ourselves and then took it to a local community college where they painted it as a class project. They used automotive paint and did a great job at a fraction of the cost of a commercial body shop.
