Pressure pot painting

Hi All,

I'm looking at painting the interior, engine compartment, trunk, and frame (or various combinations of) using Zolatone 20 series paint, but it requires a pressure pot type gun. I do not have one nor do I know anything about using one.

What is the function of the pressure pot? And is it possible to do without it?

Not really much different then painting with a different type of gun. The cup is pressured to deliver the paint. We usually set our pot pressure at around 10 lbs to start, and then dialed it in to see where it was spraying the best. In fact, my hvlp is a pressure gun, but it does not have a seperate pot, the cup on the gun is pressurized. Sometimes it is really nice having a seperate pressurized pot, you can basically paint upside down, since you don't have a cup on the bottom like siphon feed, or on top like gravity feed. Also can paint longer without having to refill if you are painting something large, but you do have to drag the pot around or hold it.
