Mfoehrkolb I stumbled upon this old thread of mine when looking at the last picture i posted. I see that many rec. the SPI clear and i also said i would keep it updated with more work i have done.


Needless to say, i love the gun. As for that, i have an upcoming project i am doing for a customer and i will be using the 1:1 SPI universal clear for it.

Here is a few pictures of stuff i did, i don't have anything else uploaded on the hosting site though.

Cant argue that...but when i called SPI the owner picked up. We spoke on the phone for about 30 minutes....and that was without me putting 1 order in (yet). Definitely top knotch service that i will support in the future!

--- At the psi i am running, with the fluid adjustment all the way out... I am still slowing myself down more than i would like... I spray really fast... but i tend to get better work when i run what i am and go slower than i really want.

I am not a slug or anything, it's still fast... just not what i naturally would like to move.

The reason i run lower psi is simply because... less overspray = less material waste... and also less of a mess from that overspray when im done.

I use dupont products...

Nason/Chromasystem BC (depends on what customer wants/needs)

as for the clear i am using 497-00 overall 3:1.

EDIT: The color was BMP - Black Magic Pearl... 2003 VW GTI 20th/R32 Black - Paint Code = LC9Z

Lower PSI usually means less overspray/fog... also... the reason why it says to use 33psi is because thats what the gun is set up for... for the most ideal atomization of material coming out.

Mfoehrkolb just sprayed with it today. i def. have to get used to it. It says on the cheat sheet to spray 33-40 psi... that crap is crazy @ that psi...

I was spraying bc/cc @ 20 psi and it came out great. idk why it says such high psi requirements. I used the rest of that "klines auto uni clear" and it didnt come out like glass. but def... way smoother than it has been out of the HF gun.

i am going to stick with my 497-00 nason clear. i like the fact that its thin and shoots out faster. runs easier... but IMO... easier to lay out.

this is the 94 acura integra gsr i shot today.



cheat sheet

Cottonyzf Have you sprayed with it yet? If so, how do you like it.

Mfoehrkolb just to keep everyone up to date...



inside is this...!

Mfoehrkolb yeah once i get this new one in the mail, the HF gun is being pushed back as a primer and sealer gun only.
