    Ah ok :(
    Is there any decent electric sprayer?

    Main purpose is to spray the sheds and fence but I've also got to paint the car ... 2 birds :dontknow:

    Failing that, I'll have to buy a compressor and sell it when I'm done.
     
  6. I've got a 40 year old Apollo low pressure high volume gun and compressor that produces a decent "commercial" finish on horticultural machinery. Under different ownership a modern version is still available.

    Nah, I would just slap that on with a roller lol.

    It's for the jag, the rear is currently 4 colours and I scratched both front wings badly forgetting I had a belt buckle on, going to spray the whole thing black, well the exterior and maybe the door jambs.

    I think it'll be best to just go for a compressor and sell when done, there's one down that road from me that should do, 100 liter 14.6cfm

    Bit of a budget tbh, spending most of the money on the mechanical side, not too bothered if the paintwork isn't perfect.

    As close to this as I can get

  9. You will certainly not get a shine like that with a Wagner spray gun unless you put a lot of paint on and then spend an awful amount of time cutting it back and polishing it !

    Does look lovely mind you !

    Yeah was a stupid idea :ashamed: I think I saw Samcrac on YouTube using an electric gun

    I'll get a compressor and a gun,
    Need to build a little temporary 'booth' on the driveway, should be able to get it looking ok.

    Don't waste your money unless you have a lot of fencing to treat.

    My parents had one. My dad sprayed the fence and made a great job... he did it so well he had over spray on the neighbours cars and the patio too

    If you are going to spray I would recommend a compressor like the one you mention & couple it to a fast mover or Duren spray gun from here.

    https://www.fastmovertoolsuk.com/paint-spray-guns.html

    Not the cheapest but it's a pro quality gun, they also sell on ebay/amazon & are sometimes cheaper. You will also need a water trap/regulator, a gun regulator, a hose & some PPE. Then there is the paint, hardener & thinners, paint filters, mixing cups, gun cleaning kit, etc. If you buy a gravity gun you'll need to buy or make a gun stand.

    https://www.spraygunsdirect.co.uk/i...storage/gun-cabinets-holders/gun-holders.html

    Apart from the cost of the compressor you could easily spend £250 on paint & equipment. Not sure about your skill level but painting a car isn't easy if you want a reasonable finish. I suggest you do some sums & add everything up then get some quotes to get the work done professionally.

    There are a few Polish guys who do bodywork & painting locally. They did a repair to my dad's plastic bumper that had a hole from accident damage. The result was superb, completely invisible, they also sprayed the whole bumper & repaired the front bumper that was hanging off on one side. The whole thing cost just £80! :o
    I have all the painting gear but if I need bodywork done I wouldn't even consider doing it myself, not at those prices!

    I already have all the hoses , regulator and water trap ect I can't remember why I've never had a compressor :dontknow:

    Just a decent gun and paint supplies,

    Always nice to learn a new skill I think.

    Not quite the same but i have sprayed this with a gun, was inside my friends workshop but since hes put a lift in there, no more spraying :(
