Do you know how to set up your gun? Do you have a regulator at your gun inlet. A mistake I did early on was setting the pressure without pulling the trigger. I got a lot of peel. I find setting your pressure first, then your fan (6-8"), and then your fluid volume to control runs works best. I just painted a car and used 12" wide aluminum flashing to tell me what my gun was doing and it worked great.

-If not what conventional gun gravity feed would be good to use for under $100.... Is this HF 47016 gun a good spraying option?

Thanks for the reply!

HVLP, high VOLUME and low pressure, what this means is the gun uses a higher volume of air (more CFM) and it simply does not matter what the pressure is. A conventional gun like that 47016 would use a heck of a lot less air than the 43430 but I have no idea how well the 47016 would work, just can't see trying to paint a car with a $10 gun and expect much. I can however attest to the fact that the 43430 most certainly will spray AE and spray it well! I use a 43430 to spray AE with and it does a really good job, for these cheap paints I will use it instead of my Iwata but for sure your compressor is no where near up to the 43430's requirements.
