    Personally i have a regulator with water trap after the main compressor, this feeds into an air drying water trap () which works very well, then into a secondary 100 ltr air receiver. After this i go into a 3 stage filter, then i have a water trap on my gun.

    I have a separator on the main tank and a secondary tank near the end of the line then another filter then out to the gun or tool the second tank can handle the water even after blasting using a large air flow of 28cfm :)

    Buy a decent workshop heater or bring the whole lot to the Sarf to spray it :)

  4. I have a workshop heater.On another note i notice u pol do 2 different speeds of pannel wipe, should i be using the fast or slow?
    Edit, i went for slow as i will have more time to wipe off.

    I use fast for everything.

    They use slow on larger panels, but you can use fast on large panels by degreasing it in smaller sections.
     
  6. Just thought that as im doing a whole bumper and a bonnet id be as well with slow.
     
  7. Was looking at a kit with 2x10m hoses with the water trap in the middle, i have 2 hoses, 1x1/4 and 1x1/2.So am i right in thinking 1/2 to water trap then 1/4 to gun with inline filter at the gun?

    Isn't there a cheap way the pipes could be cooled without introducing other problems. Maybe something as simple as a shower head over the top of the pipes connected to a water catch basin underneath with a few froze ice blocks and a pump.

    Or insulation, etc...

    There's a lot more moisture in the air when it's hot. The least humid days are cold crips days, typical November weather.

    sort of a silly thing but anyone been to barbeques and had those water butts with all those bear cans in it

    remember how cold your bear :D was when you pulled your can out :drunk:

    so think about it for use when in summer just drain it in winter
