I’m certainly not an expert but I believe an HPLV gun will deliver a nice spray with much less overspray.  You also want to make sure you have a good water separator on your air system as water will definitely ruin the paint.  Take a look at the systems available at Eastwood.  They seem to have quality items.

Subject: [TR] Pneumatic paint gun

I may be tackling my first paint job not using aerosol cans.  (The guinea pig I'll be practicing on is a 1954 Ford Jubilee tractor I'm restoring.)

I have an 80 gallon Husky air compressor that should handle a paint gun readily enough.  But I have no idea how that kind of painting happens.  I suspect a gun with a resevoir to hod a pint of paint, something like that.

Any recommendations for a paint gun that won't dribble more that I do at my age????
