    i've used black smoothrite in both aerosol and brush on before. i slightly thin the brush on and it flows better losing virtually all the brush marks, plus it'll go on thicker than the spray can will. either is good though.
    neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Don't forget to scuff the primer once dry or you may have adhesion issues.
