What kind of sprayer did you use? Tips?
Sata minijet 4 HVLP for spot repair and touch up worked great for me. Shot partial doors, rocker panels, underhood fenders, and door jambs. Tip... was a 1.0 mm ;)

Finishline 3 full size I haven't needed yet but from what I've read shoots quality pattern with minimal loss also a HVLP gun.

Best real tips... a good water trap / filter, brand new airhose, prep and more prep, read a couple how to paint books, listen to the paint experts advise, and do not mix different systems, and practice on junk parts.

I had to buy one since the guy I'm using his booth crapped out. I bought a Iwata lph400 with 1.4mm and just bought a durablock kit for priming and backup for bc/cc. I was just going to go with the Iwata but the cost of buying a 1.7 tip was almost the same as what I paid for the kit. It carries 1.4 and 1.7 along with a 1.0 touch up gun.

I was going to buy the Sata nr2000 and thought about asking the guys at wesco. I called them after finding the sprayer on ebay and they said go with the iwata. They sell more iwata than sata something like 400:1. I just hope that I'll be happy.

Danno,

Those 1.4 and bigger tips are good for DP and High Build primers but will most likely give you troubles when laying down base. Suggest you see if you can get a 1.0 for your main gun to shoot your metallic base.

I used the cheap 2 gun Devilbis starter kit from Eastwood on the coupe. Ended up re-shooting the silver with the touch-up gun because the main gun din't come with a small enough tip and after seeing the mottled results with the blue, I'll probably re-shoot it with the TU gun as well.
