cheap gun for glue

I'm re-covering a dash pad and I need a spray gun for the glue. Later I will be doing door panels. Can't seem to find a cheap gun with a big enough tip in the town I live in, and the cheapest one I can find on-line, including the frieght, is this one: It has a 1.8mm tip. Or does anyone know of a better one for less?

I have a Husky touch up gun that I don't use much, and I was thinking of drilling the 1.4 tip out with a 5/16" drill bit, which would give me a 1.98 mm hole size plus a little for run-out. Is this do-able?

Up in Canada it seems extremely tough to find a lot of the stuff you guys in the States can get easily, without paying through the nose for freight. I managed to buy a little of the proper foam and glue from an independant upholsterer, Chips Custom Upholstery, but if I buy on-line the freight usually doubles the price of a lot of things!
