First time using an Iwata LPH-400

Just finished spraying my metal dash with the LPH-400 and all I can say is WOW, talk about a nice spraying gun. The best atomization of any gun I've used in the past. I layed down around 6 coats of PPG Duracryl Laquer and it turned out really nice. Very uniform coating over a sealer coat of epoxy primer. Just deciding on if I want to coat it with a clear or not now. Pics to follow soon.

That is one nice gun, no doubt about it.....but. Spraying lacquer is very easy, I sprayed a 69 Camaro with Ditzler lacquer about 12 years ago with a Binks #69 conventional gun and it came out superb. Now if you really want to see what that gun can do try it with some modern BC/CC.

I love that gun as well! It is an atomizing machine for sure. 302Z is right on the lacquer being easy to atomize-any gun should be able to handle lacquer no problem because of it's thinner viscosity. Now, when you try to spray a modern high solids urethane-that's when you really put the gun to the test as some of these are so thick a junk gun will do poorly. The LPH-400LV breaks up these modern high solids paints excellent. Congrats on picking a quality gun, you'll also save a heck of a lot of material with the high transfer efficiency.
