    It bubbles fizzles and must rest 15 minutes after mixing for the reaction to be " over " before spraying but heat is still generating long after

    How's the weather up there? Beautiful state! Pack rats hibernate or burrow deep and still wreak havoc all winter?

    You are getting lots of opinions. I have been painting cars for almost 40 years. All self taught, but I do pretty well if I do say so. I will say that you can do an acceptable job with an inexpensive gun. However, the better guns will give you better atomization. I would HIGHLY recommend the Devilbis FLG4 Finishline gun. That was my main gun for several years. I also have a Devilbis SRi Pro touch up gun that is amazing for smaller tasks. I recently retired my FLG4 to primer duties and bought a Iwata Super Nova. Bottom line is that if you can afford a few hundred dollars for the FLG4, it is an excellent gun that will last a LONG time if you clean it thoroughly after each use. Buy a few extra tips and you will have Priming and painting covered. Another advantage of buying an FLG4 with tips for painting and priming is that you can practice spraying technique while priming, and by the time you put on color and clear, you just might have it down pat. Also remember that a paint job can be NO BETTER than the prep. I painted my Barracuda with a Devilbis, and it came out pretty good. Feel free to PM me if you have any painting questions at all.

      Lots of research and reading over the weekend.
      Maybe base coat and clear is a better option. Just have to make a nervous attempt.

      I have seen some used Iwata guns but I cant justify buying a used one and possibly having to rebuild? Dont want another headache. Or is it easier then I imagine?

      The finishline flg4 comes with 3 different tips which opens up options.

      I dont want a gun that gives headaches. (Hf)

      I admit that the higher $ guns have better atomization, and are worth their costs, especially if the car deserves such.

      I remember back to the 70's my dad painted a 2 horse inline trailer for me, F8 met. green, he did it was a sears what 8-10 gal. old compressor and a cheap siphon gun he borrower. It was flawless, but he was a perfectionist. It was is first time at such too!!! No chit.

      OK so that is where a few drops dripped from! I just fixed those few spots an continued on. I bet you are right about the lid. I had or have another cheap guy with a metal tank. Don't remember any problem with it. I have used different epoxy primers, some require time to activate, others not.
      Seems like I always have 2-3 cars I am doing and the cost of materials keep me from trying a high(er) $ gun. Maybe for the last car I do, I an get a better gun. Not to just keep the bugs and dust out of it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

      How do you like the super nova? I've been using mine for about 8 years now and bought the Entech too. I wouldn't go back to a sata.

      Haven't used it yet. I do have access to a real paint booth, but it isn't heated, so it will be spring before I get a chance to use it. I called the US headquarters for Iwata and talked to a guy named David. Really nice guy. He talked to me for about 10 minutes; which impressed me since I am not a professional. I told him that I could not really afford one gun for basecoat and another for clear. So he recommended the 5935 with the 1.3 tip. He said you don't really need two guns and that I would really like the 5935. Also, I have been using the DeKups disposable paint cup system for several years now. It is really awesome since it cuts down on gun cleaning time and allows you to spray holding the gun upside down.
