I am not going to say that you cannot get good results from a cheap gun, as some have. I will say that your chances of a good finish are reduced using a cheap gun. Everyone shoots differently. The set-up on my gun may not work for you, although it works great for me. There is no doubt in my mind that a top shelf gun will make the job a lot easier to accomplish.

I am sure that is the case, and if my auto body hobby continues I will make buying a good gun a priority. I realize I am asking alot from this gun, but I have seen good paint finishes using it. I have a couple more setup options to try and if that doesn't work, it will be time to get out the credit card.
