Depends on a few things. Really, only way to know for sure is start thin and add more paint to thicken. You want good atomization. I would start thinner than maple syrup and go from there. If oil based, use naptha.
Thank you. Now I just have to wait until it warms up a little bit so I can paint it. It has been consistently in the 60's right up until I am ready to paint and it is supposed to be under 35 for the next week.

Well I was trying to use the search function and find an answer so that I didn't create an unneeded thread. Lol

There's no harm in commenting on any of the threads, that's why they're on the forum. I just laughed because anytime someone brings up an old thread it reminds me of how long I've been on the forums and all of the guys that have moved on. :beer:

So true....no harm...no offense was implied.

Just don’t expect any of those guys to respond cause they have moved on.....and probably let their pits fall into a rusted dis-repair of a mess in the corner of the back yard.
