Anyone use this paintgun kit?

Well Im 16 years old and am from Pennsylvania and have been doing body work and learning paintin and what not from my neighbor for the past 2 years. (He owns his own body shop)

Well He approached me and told me if I wanted I could do a 68 Comaro by myself. Told me to make a parts list of everything i wanted and pick a color out and hed order everything and give me it to restore myself. (everything from strippin it to paintin)

Well long story short I ordered a paint gun set from East Wood Co. Wanted to know what yalls input is on it. Weather it was worth my money. If it would spray and lay down well.

Thanks.

any one use this paint gun kit

it isn't a bad one to use. I have shot with one a couple of times. Can't complain. To be honest though the gun is only a small part of a nice paint job.the guy behind it and his technique are what make it. I have seen guys lay paint down nicer with a primer gun than some could, using the best rated top of the line gun on the market.You've heard the old cliche (pratice makes perfect) well it is 100% true. If their was a gun on the market that would lay paint down perfect evey time I would tell you of it and I would already own three. LOL with your project

that kit seems to be ok. You don't really need that touch up gun. I have one at work, hardly ever use it. All you need is big gun like 1.8 tip setup and 1.3-1.5 for bases/clears.
I like getting my supplies, mostly tools from this guy, comes out cheaper if I were to buy them from local paint shop. I only buy bondo/paint from local paint store and we have a lot to choose from.

I bought the StartingLine kit that came with the primer gun and the smaller 1.5/1.3mm tip gun. I used it to paint a boat this summer and got really good results. Then again, I don't have a higher end gun to compare it to......

Iwata and SATA guns do a gorgeous job of laying down paint but that being said there are a lot of fellows doing good work with Harbor Freight and Astro guns as well as some of the other brands..

This can help you

This sounds like a really good deal for you. Glad to hear of people like your neighbor helping kids get into cars like that. If the work interests you it sounds like you've got an opportunity that most will never have-so dig in and learn lots. Good luck on the project. 68 Camaro's aren't a dime-a-dozen anymore...
