Post ADVICE ON PURCHASING A HVLP SPRAY GUN

I am planning on purchasing a HVLP spray gun and I am wondering what everyone else's opinion is on this type of gun. I have never used this type of gun yet, but would like to paint my HOTROD this following summer with one. I looked at a Craftsman model but the plastic paint can (where you put the paint) seemed kind of small (smaller than the conventional type) are they all smaller? Can you run the gun completely empty with this type (eliminating paint waste)? How much air pressure would you generally use for HVLP? Does the paint cover more area/go further with HVLP? What else can you tell me about this type of gun? THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANYBODYS ADVICE........ <img src="graemlins/mwink.gif" border="0" alt="[mwink]" />
