What size compressor did you use...what type HVLP gun...tip size...pressure settings etc?
Is your compressor "plumbed" to cool and fliter the air? I've read about this and wonder if that matters a great deal for painting my beater truck
Did you do it outdoors, in a garage, in a paint booth
What paint/CC brand did you use.
I'm a pain...sorry. But it would really help me out to know. Thanks!
My compressor was a 6.5 hp oiless upright when I got it but the compressor locked up so now I have a different compressor on the old tank, I think its close in size though because its about the same output, its the oil type now. I don't have a filter on it but it wouldn't hurt. I use an old binks siphon gun.
I paint in my garage but hang plastic on the ceiling and sides. I use an old furnace blower for an exhaust fan.
I use Nason brand paints, its a good compromise between price and quality.
