BTW this attaches AFTER the regulator you add to the base of your paint gun...So you have air line, regulator, filter, and gun in that order...

Smaller chunks at a time make the task less daunting!

Also, Having the entire car in primer makes the paint cover better on the first coat, reducing the total number of coats needed for total coverage..Color saturation as we like to call it. Using less paint means less film build, and less paint wasted!

Paints and clears call for "flash times" between coats. When the gun sets in a hot garage with paint in it, it can start to "kick" or chemically dry, before you are ready...The paint Mfg. state dry times at a certain temperature, like 72 degrees...IT WILL dry faster in a hot shop...SO, before shooting a second or third coat, plug the end of the paint gun with a clean rag and lightly pull the trigger...You will hear a peculating sound as the paint is stirred inside the gun...This keeps the metallic stirred in flake colors, and allows the paint to keep from setting up in the gun as fast, restricting the flow of air to achieve a good fan pattern.

Jonny says, "Watch the heat, and you can't be beat!"
