Merry Christmas Every One All of this Paint talk

Recommended Posts

REM
I am well under way to my B-10 rebuild, lots of sand-blasted and primed parts. I haven't quite decided yet if I will use a near match spray can or go for the original colour. All of this paint talk sure has me thinking about which would be the most practical method for me. I am considering purchasing an inexpensive HVLP sprayer My brother has had excellent results in the restoration of his 1968 28 FT. Owens Wood Boat. Has any one had any experience with this type of sprayer for their project? I would like to hear about it.

I opted for the spray bomb on my B1 I used catipiller yellow this time.It is O K match close for me.I am also getting almost done on this project now.Am having problems with getting the generator placment correct.It was not on the engine when I got the tractor so it might not be the correct generator.I do have the hood to do yet and the thing does not quite fit in the blasting cabinet to good.Bob

I use a gravity feed HVLP gun and love it.Alot less overspay and that means less paint needed for the job.But not all people like them so see if you can use one first.My brother bought one because I liked mine so well but, he does'nt like his at all. mowerman1193[A href='http://www.geocities.com/mowerman1193/index.html']http://www.geocities.com/mowerman1193/index.html[/a]

Check out EASTWOOD's catalog for HVLP paint spraying equipment, . Also, TP Tools & Equipment . You get a lot less overspray with HVLP compared to a standard HP air compressor and gun system. I've not used HVLP myself yet, but intend to switch for others have told me there is less overspray. I've used a standard gun and 60-80psi for spraying and everything in my shop get a nice coating of that particular color.

I've never used a HVLP sprayer, but I have used "inexpensive" suction guns. Spit, sputter, & splatter. I'd suggest you check out DeVilbiss.[A href='http://www.devilbiss.com/']http://www.devilbiss.com/[/a]

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
