Spray Gun for Adhesive

What type/brand of spray gun do you guys recommend for spraying adhesive? I built a fiberglass dash and center console for my S-10 along with new door panels. Everything will be covered in tweed. Ive had success in the past using 3M adhesive from a spray can, but this time Id like to have everything stick for good. Most everything will be covered with closed cell foam then tweed. Also, could you recommend a source and type of adhesive? Should a gallon be enough?

I would by the cheapest HVLP gun you can find. Follow the manufactures spec sheet for the adhesive for tip size and thinning requirements.

I just use a cheap paint gun and weldwood spray adshive. No thining. It's best to put a way on the gun to turn the air pressure up and down where the air line hooks up.

I have a cheap $10 Harbor Freight Siphon gun I have been using for upolstery adhesive for three years now. If it does plug up, I'll just get another one, it isn't worth the time to clean it.
