  • Painting finished product

    What sprayer do most of you use when spraying your finished product?
    I have a Husky standard bottom spray gun, and two cheep CP harbor freight gravity fed spray guns, one 20 oz and one 4 oz detail.
    Also what tip number do you use in your guns? My 20 oz has a 1.3 tip and I am planing on using it praying thinned rust-olium paint on my projects and clear coat on my horseshoe projects with the 4 oz gun.

    I am converting both gravity fed guns to 3M PPS liner systems.

    Thanks for any input.

    At the shop I use the conventionnal pot for big job and rattle cans for small jobs. The rattle cans companies makes some good products these days.
    A good primer is yellow oxide, I have that primer on a a 10 years old motorcycle and there is not a spect of rust on it.

      I use Sata and DeVilbiss HVLP guns, but that's just my preferences. I use whatever size needle and aircap that the finish manufacterer recommends in their data sheet for the product I'm spraying.
      Sometimes there's no second chances.
