OK, I've used a lot of paint guns from the Wagner CrapoSprayer to gravity cup, HVLP, pressure cup, siphon feed, direct feed air, pressure pot etc... but I have never sprayed automotive paint onto metal, only latex onto bat houses or sheet rock walls.
I have a quart of Forest Green mixed up for my wife's 2010 Patrol from the local auto paint shop to paint over the sidecar repaired damage. He was not a wealth of information when it comes to guns, he just pointed to a $480 HVLP gravity cup gun.
When I have the "bad spot" all fixed up, the area sanded with 400 grit, taped off and ready to spray... I'd rather not experiment with a $70 quart of paint but nothing else I have is the same consistency as this stuff. (single application, 3 parts paint + 1 part activator)
I have what I believe is this gun (or close to it, had it for 10 years), http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/ ... _200343114
Whatever gravity feed HVLP gun I use... what size tip would I need? Spraying latex requires 2mm or larger (I think I have a 2.4mm in it right now) I can't imagine that's going to work for automotive paint.
Suggestions welcome, complete newb to painting anything with wheels on it.
