Cool weeee thx centerline and a couple ?s for ya

well u might remember last weeek or so i asked bout the rattle can primer sealer n junk. well i thought about the answer you get what u pay for. after about a weeek of thinking, today i went to the harbor frieght store next town over and boughta hvlp central pneumatic paint gun #07902 think it was like 70 bux. looks good has the paint canister attached to hoses and the spray handle on the other ends so u can shoot how ever u want with out worring i guess.

some time next week or this weekend im gonna go to the Sherman williams store (they are an okay place arent they???) and pick up some epoxy primer and do my sh** right.
i have a 40 gal 4 hp compressor makes 6.5cfm at 90 psi & 8.1 cfm at 40 psi

the gun says average of 10 cfm think i should be okay i hope.

so does this sound like a good idea did i get the right stuff?

..........and also is it absolutely nessesary to strip it to metal b4 epoxy primering or can i just go ahead and do it over my other primer. the old primer is very decent and i doubt itll come off on its own.

this is a link to the paint gun i bought PGun
also got some box end ratched wrench set for 17 bux on sale, might be a pos but they look good (never know till i usem)..

From a strictly primer standpoint I think you'll be OK. I don't use HVLP equipment so I'm not up to speed on all the particulars and the quanitiy of air required. Even if you're a little low on the CFM for primer it shouldn't matter that much.

Sherwin Williams has been used by several people on the board and hopefully someone who has used it will chime in. I use PPG or DuPont products myself so I can't really comment on the SW paint.

If the current primer is OK you shouldn't need to sand it to the bare metal. The epoxy primer will act as a sealer and give you a good surface to do any body work. You will have to rough it up though so the new primer will have a good surface to stick to.

Good luck with your project.

ive read most the articles on this site and see alot of people use the ppg primer if i see it n the store ill get it .... lookin to get the top part red oxide and bottom half black.... man its gonna look sweet.

One thing to remember when your using modern paint systems. They are chemically designed to be used, mixed and sprayed a particular way. Each paint will have a "P" sheet which will tell you what surfaces you can spray it on, what thinners to use, what hardeners to use and in what ratios. It will also tell you a lot of other information and spraying pressures.

Whatever paint you choose make sure you get a copy of the "P" sheet and follow it exclusively. If the paint isn't mixed correctly with the correct components it won't work properly and you could have all kinds of problems. Think of it as a set of instructions for your paint.

Good luck.
