I’m looking for a new paint gun to paint a couple cars with. What kind do you guys suggest Sata, Iwata, Devilbiss?? Need to blow paint and clear with it.
I bought one of these a couple years ago on Franks recommendation. Mine came with 3 tip size changes. Amazon had a great price and I think next day delivery. I love it.Devilbiss Tekna. I'm a SATA guy true and true but, tried the Tekna a few years ago. They won't break the bank as much as the SATA, but man does it spray awesome. Base and clear.
So I bought a Iwata lph400 because what I read on it sounded like it fit my bill. And it was cheap compared to a Sata. I have never painted an entire car and it’s been a long time since I’ve painted anything. So I’m going to pester the shit out of you guys along the way and maybe my car will turn out with a half ass paint job.1.3 or 1.4 is the needle size not the cup. Its usually 700 or 1000ml I like the 700 because its shorter and theres less chance on hitting your work in curves or angles. 1.3 is better for base, depending on solid content of clear would determine needle size for it. You can turn the 1.4 down but can't turn the 1.3 up. My favorite gun is the lph400 Iwata and its great with metallics my fastest gun is a sata. I can lay a slicker finish with the Iwata, the sata will getter done in a hurry. Everybody sprays different and will have a favorite. If you your new to the art you cant go wrong with a lph400 its more forgiving and less expensive if you paint on crack or just hyper the sata is the gun for you. Any decent gun will be fine cause you'll cut and buff anyway. check out spraygunworld.com
Reg suggestion?I love my iwata guns. I used to sell them now I spray with them every day. I have 5 lph400 and 4 w400's. The w400 is more of a conventional gun even though it is compliant plus it will cost less. Uses a little more material and a little more air also. Most important thing with any gun is setting it up right and getting the air pressure right. Get a good regulator. Good luck
