Just a word on the 43430 and clear coat, I bought two of those guns and at first I too was disappointed with the clear coat performance. After hearing everyone say they need a LOT of air and the fact that the specs say, I think like 13 CFM@30 PSI, I removed that 1/4" regulator that came with it and replaced my 1/4" fittings and couplings with larger better flowing parts. It was like a different gun, I mean the difference was amazing and the clear went on like glass. Yep, that thing likes air and if you make sure it gets what it needs you will probably like it a lot. I have just recently up-graded to to a pro quality gun but I intend to hang on to my "purple" guns.
