When using small batches the best thing you can do to minimize waste is to use a gravity feed sprayer. It will spray to the last drop where a siphon sprayer will need a couple of ounces for the tube to pick up. That way the only waste is overestimating how much for each job. You don't have to spend big bucks on a sprayer. Harbor Freight sprayers work fine. If you're not using a two part paint it doesn't matter because what is left over you can put in another can or jar until the next time. Any paint you spray is hazardous and any that are two part are especially hazardous especially if you find the word isocyanate on any part of it. A person really needs a fresh air supplied respirator to use paint with isocyanate hardener. It will go through a conventional paint respirator and put a major hurt on you even using one or two gallons. I'm not familiar with Sherwin Williams automotive line of paints. In the industrial line of paint, for a tractor or implement I would recommend Sher Kem enamel. If you use the hardener with it, it does contain isocyanate. It's the polyurethane in the paint. In order for it to achieve it's true hardness the isocyanate creates a chemical reaction with the polyurethane.

I used Sher-Kem with hardener on our 1933 McCormick-Deering I-30. Went on nice, good shine, I am happy with it.
