Minimum filter requirements for spraying primer?

I am wondering what are the minimum filter requirements needed for spraying primer. I literally have a compressor with a 25 ft hose and that's it, what type of filter(s) do I need to be able to spray Featherfill? Part numbers or links would be great.

Thanks in advance!

You can get by with a cheap wall mounted water trap $60, attach a desicant snake hose $15 before your 25 foot hose and for added insurance a cheap disposable desicant mini filter $8 just before the gun. You're best off plumbing some hard line between the compressor and water trap with a few downlegs. Air humidity factors in and also how hot your compressor gets.

Just be SURE to CLEAN your gun as soon as your done spraying that G2 as it WILL harden quickly. It's like working f'glass and uses the same hardner,so don't expect an hour potlife in that gun.

Thank you for the replies.

Regarding the pot life...I assume that since I will be coating the entire car I will have to empty and refill the cup a few times. I guess I will have to completely clean the cup & gun before each fill up?

Thanks

don't skimp on using a filter at this point......the primer is the base for the paint, you don't need oil impregnated in the primer
