Should work fine- great product.
Just experiment a little . I like XIM latex extender and a bit of water to get it to the right consistency.

Yeah, do some tests before you get to the job site, or on the job site before you hit the work. Our local Pdca chapter just hosted the lead spray trainer for Boeing at our meeting last night. Lots of good info. Pays to be a member. Do a "fast pass" test where you open up the air and fluid all the way, do a fast pass with full trigger pull on the sample masking paper etc and see if your needle nozzle setup gives you good atomization. Should have nice little paint dots. If too big of dots, move to a smaller setup. You can also heat the material and or thin it.

Thanks guys,I tested it on the job site today with a little campbells aquastar flow additive and a splash of water then put the cup in hot water for about 10 mins.I was happy with the results.I test sprayed it and decided it was good to go.I sprayed out three pre primed french doors and thought the final finish looked darn near like I used oil base.I am shooting more on some six panels tomorrow.The muralo suprised me as I have tried other water borne paints and they sprayed terrible unless they were reduced to p**s.The muralo I would say was reduced very little thus upholding the integrity of the finish.

Muralo Ultra is the shizz for trim. Even brushed it can look about 90% as good as sprayed. Sprayed, most other paints don't even look 80% as good as Ultra does.
