When it comes to stencils, forget rattle cans and all that jazz. Use a two stage automotive paint, typically I use PPG shop line. Just use the right kind of paints and all these issues people keep experiencing go away.

Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

Yeah. And I didn’t feel like investing in a huge air compressor tank, a proper spray gun, expensive automotive paints, a proper ventilated spraying area, proper body protection, etc etc. Not everyone has the means to do that, nor the space, etc. Especially if this is your first restore.
People have gotten good results using the rattle can methods with stencils. That’s what I’d like to hear.

Nonsense. A small pancake compressor, 16.00 gun at harbor freight is all you need. No more overspray than rattle cans and a fraction of the problems. Kills me to read all these stories of people restoring games worth thousands of dollars complaining about cheap paint
