Dumb spraying question

I'm getting ready to repaint my TJ this spring/summer, having a friend do the body work (does it for a living), then I'll repaint myself. Been practicing with the Preval system, and it's coming out a lot better than I ever expected. But it got me to thinking (which can be a bad thing), can the Wagner-style spray painters be used to paint a Jeep?

If not, why not? What is the difference between them and the standard auto spray painters?

There is alot of difference. The Wagner style sprays paint in alot more volume which is alot thicker than auto paint. I don't think it atomizes the paint like an auto style paint gun does.

Okay, thanks. I figured there was a reason people don't use them.
