Default Parking lot striping

I have been asked to stripe a fairly large grocery store parking lot. I have painted curbs and lines in small capacity but want the most pro way of going about it. Any advice on paints and machines ?

We use the Line Lazer from Graco. We use SW's SetFast TM5626, solvent based acrylic and HotLine TM2153 Waterborne Acrylic.

However, we are testing and maybe moving to SW's Pro-Park Waterborne Traffic Paint as we've been creating a lot of left over Acetone was waste for disposal.

Also, maybe making the move to a different manufacturer called Franklin. They have a line of water based traffic paints.

I assume you are going over the existing faded lines? If not, you have a real job ahead of you laying out the parking spaces.

Thanks roamer...yes going over faded lines. Should they be pressure washed and primed ? I was hoping to use solvent based unless you feel the waterborne is comparable

Do any traffic paints still contain lead?
