Trial & Error man,Trial & Error.
Rocket science at it's BEST!!

Aint that the truth Bee4me, but this stuff is fun none the less !

In my earlier post about doing the shooting test between guns I neglected
to say that I had reduced the paint by 10% but it still sprayed imho not
that great.

I went ahead and ordered the devilbiss plus GFG-670 gun today as I had
it on my mind to have atleast one higher end gun to shoot with, If this gun
saves me some time and produces good results It will be money well spent.

The thing is I have the car all ready to shoot, its primed with epoxy and
sanded to a baby smooth finish so it would be a shame to blow all the
effort I have put in so far for the sake of $300.00 so its worth a shot !.

Using the finex 1.0 mm gun, the actual peel was not that bad. I was able
to wet sand it out very easily, My intent is to wet sand the entire car once finished with the painting but so this part goes easy I wanna try lay the paint
as flat as is possible with my setup.

I am kind of anal about trying to get things right, I will beat this to death
until its on the money.

Hey thanks for your reply and help, I shall follow up this thread before
the week is out with my results. I got to also get some digital photos so
all can see,

Best regards X
