I paid a guy to paint my 67 dart and it came out beutiful. I laid primer with an older suction gun which was new in the late 80s. From time to time I have painted farm machinery with it. Now I have been working on a 96 reg cab short box dakota with a big block swap. I am planning to save some money by painting it myself. I also have a 1931 model A in line for paint. I am no professional painter and I know I cant compete at that level. Air compressor is not an issue or concern. I am looking at a new gravity fed hvlp gun. I see the devilbiss finishline guns at the $200 price range. The old suction gun can still lay the primers down. Mainly thinking single stage paints. Is this a good gun for the price or are there better options in this range?
