Default Re: Paint spray gun

The paint gun choice is greatly influenced by what kind of paint you can buy and spray legally.
In California (los angeles county) solvent bourn paints like we used to use are harder and harder to buy and not legal to apply in most if not all automotive applications..

What is left is water bourn paint, that have to be applied in base/clear with the clear being a high quality solvent bourn product.. The situation May very possibly require 3 different guns. Primer / base / clear. The nozzle orifice being biggest to smallest. Even the gun internals are different for water. Stainless all around most times..
