    hi everyone,
    for a while now i have been thinking of learning to spray properly.
    iv done alot of work with spray cans and feel i do a good job but its not as good as i think i could do with the proper equipment.

    if anyone can give me advice from experience where the best place to buy the equipment from would be good!

    ill be honest i dont have much money to spend, im looking at spending around £50 on a cheap gun to start with then around another £150 on other stuff i need.

    id really like some advice also on the pros and cons on getting a 240v spray gun over an air gun with a compressor and vice versa.

    im guessing now, paints are water based so need to get a gun that is good for this and also a 2-pack laquer!

    any advice at all would be very helpfull to me

    dan.

    possibly somewhere like machinemart could be a good place to look...

    try this

    http://www.machinemart.co.uk/shop/ca...nt-air-brushes

    i have bought a few bit from them in the past and they are very reasonable.

    good luck and i may let you do mine as a test....

    good luck and happy spraying...

    HAD AN ELECTRIC SPRAY GUN NOT GOOD ENOUGH AS FOR A COMPRESSOR AND SPRAYGUN BUT IF YOUR THINKING OF SPRAYING A COMPLET CAR THEN YOU WILL NEED TO GET AN AIR RECIEVER OR A COMPRESSOR WITH A LARGE RECIEVER!!!!!!!! THE REASON FOR THIS IS YOU NEED A CONSTANT AIR PREASURE BUT THE 2.5 OR 3 HP COMPRESSORS ONLY HAVE A SMALL RECIEVER HOPE THIS HELPS LOOK ON FLEEBAY YOU CAN GET SOME BARGAINS ON THERE
    love life as much as your car
