    Painting a Vehicle

    Post  Kurai on Fri Feb 12, 2010 8:22 pm

    Hey all so I think ima save on some funds and go ahead and paint my Z myself...will save me roughly 3000 dollars lol. I got someone here who has painted many vehicles and will do it for me with me assisting him. Since I wanna learn how to do it as well as get my hands dirty some since this is a project i have always wanted to do.

    So with that what all equipment should i buy far as guns etc etc...? He has his own equipment but i wanna buy my own so i can do my own work later on down the road...might even invest in a small powdercoating oven as well.

    I'm about to get an eastwood setup and an electric oven for small parts. I have access to various blasting cabinets too.

    What is a good not to insanely expensive gun set to get for doing automotive jobs? I know next to squat about gravity paint guns but from what i have seen so far i guess Iwata makes some of the best products but those little things arent cheap at all lol.

    not so much a name but what you want to look at is the number of holes in the tip of it to put it simple more holes more air better speading of paint and better mist. another thing to keep in mind is this you can use a roller brush just need to sand alot to get it smooth
