Just purchased my first spray gun a used Sharpe Platinum , plan on using it for base coat (has a 1.3 tip) - should get it next week. Been doing a lot of reading and leaning towards a SATA 3000 RP or an Iwata LPH-400LV 1.4 for clear coat and a SataMiniJet 3 or 4 for touchup work. Not sure yet on primer gun - probably whatever I find best bargain on craigslist. Anyone ever use a Campbell Hausfeld DH7500 with a 1.8 tip for primer? Also any advice on painting wheels? May not obtain the minijet for some time - can I use the Sharpe Platinum to apply base coat on these wheels? I have a set of 14" wheels that need painted Astral Silver. They guy I used in the past mentioned he used an adhesion promoter - assuming wheels are clean and I apply adhesion promoter - do I wait for it to dry before applying base coat? Any feedback is appreciated
