[Spridgets] WWOSHIT in Dodge City Delayed....

I've run into some complications concerning the April 9th-10th dates. My
painter now tells me he cannot get to the Midget in time for this
deadline. I have found another painter that I can trust, but he, too, has
a full schedule and a waiting line at this late date.
My current thought is to purchase a decent compressor and paint the car
myself in my garage. I've been down this road with Frank (Holy Sprite) and
I feel comfortable enough to spray it myself using light coats and single
stage paint. How bad could I screw up?!! (Don't answer that!!)
My compressor is too dinky for the job and I've needed a new one anyway so
I will put some of the labor cost I was going to have toward a decent
compressor, water and oil drier and pressure regulator. I already have a
new set of HVLP guns.
Can any of you wizards recommend a good compressor? Should be 2 stage,
3-4hp, aroung 15 CFM at 90 PSI, 60 gallon tank, 230 volt. What are you all
using? Recommendtions gratefully accepted.
Oh.... And I guess this means we will have to put off the WWOSHIT until
some time later this year if you all still want to come, guzzle beer and
eat pizza & Mexican food.
Ron mentioned the possibility of a weekend OSHT before painting. There is
some work we could do before the paint goes on if anyone is interested.
