|Danno||I did a bit of spraying at Voodoo.com. IMPO hvlp are the best because the low pressure and better atomization of paint/air. Us a large spray nozzle for primers and a smaller one for pint.|

just revisited this thread because I purchased the paint recently and I'm going to start shooting...PAINT.
I can shoot the balls off any arsehole at 500 yards with a .223/5.56 it's not hard.
spraying paint...might be a different story.

Painting , next best to chrome , paint guns like any guns beauty and best, are in the eyes of the beholder. I use both suction and gravity feed, and they are from harbor freight . lowes etc. but the point being, is the paint besides the gun, the gravity feed guns are great once you learn how to use them , buuutttt , the needle size and orfice have a great deal to do with what you are shooting, acrylic, enamel, primer , as such, because you won't get the finish, or coverage. but you will get the stress. I have been there , got the coffee cup , bumper sticker, and t-shirt.

|Dubz||best i've been told is Sata, the more experienced the painter, the better they can do with shoddy guns, so if you get a great gun, it will prolly give you a better job|

With a name like Unstable its prolly not a good Idea to start a topic of as "Whats a good gun for a beginer".
Maybe its just me.

I too, agree with Willys. I've got two old Craftsman suction guns - one for primer and one for finish coat application. While base-coat-clear-coat systems can't be beat for ease of application, they are most generally an acrylic urethane based product. If you can smell this stuff while you're applying it, chances are, you're either killing brain cells or yourself, or both. A full hood and filtered outside air source should be used in conjunction with any automotive finish product. It's even more important if you're dealing with acrylic urethanes, theyBnasty.

Get a Harbor Freight 1qt siphon gun. I have two (the oldest one for fiberglass gel coat, primer etc., the newest one for good paint) and as one goes bad I buy another one. Cost is only about $40 and they are as good as the $$$$$ Binks and DeVilbiss ones (it just may be I am not good enough painter to notice the difference!). Great learning tools.
I also have a HVLP free head, 2qt pressure pot unit I use for painting car bodies 'cause I can aim the head any direction without fear of sputtering or dripping. I know the purists like the gravity cup guns but the free head one sure works great for me and I don't worry about running out of paint during a coat or angle I hold the head.
Learn how to do base coat/ clear coat. It is by far the best finish available today. Any quality brand is fine, just follow their label directions and things should go fine.

Sucking cyanide ain't fun. Conventional guns were invented in the dark ages when paint was paint and not invented in a modern day chemistry lab. New "paint" is the result of chemists inventing shinier, tougher, longer lasting paint. The toxic ingredients necessitate safer technology, not tree huggers. That is common sense. Toxic fumes results in Cancer and death. Pretty final. HVLP cuts down on the toxic overspray. If tree huggers had anything to do with new application technology, then good for them. When your paint won't lay down and flow it needs to be reduced not blasted on. By the way reducer is relatively cleaner than cyanide based epoxy.
