I'm a rank amateur painter. So far I have painted one fender, and two
Fender - borrowed HVLP gun , gravity feed (top cup). Minimal overspray, easy
to control, easy to see the work as you spray. Did this in a closed shop,
with no problem.
Ramps - sprayed these outside, conventional spray gun. Fogged up the whole
neighborhood, wasted a lot of paint.
Both my conventional guns were stolen last month. I'll replace them with an
HVLP el cheapo - probably the Harbor Freight one.
