I think i have some dent tools at work, if not i can get some from the dent guy, scratches i can prob get out by buffing or wet sanding then buffing, and molded mud flaps would look good. When are you doing this?

I get lucky I get to use the garage at work for all my needs. and we already do body work and painting there so i have all tools readily avaliable.I might have a hook up on a painter. I will no within the next few days. I was going to spray my car in the spring but if i can get this hook up i wont have to do it myself...

For what you are looking to do, you can start off with a smaller 5 gallon compressor and let that pay for a bigger one with the work you do with it. You do not need much to run an HVLP gun. Now if you are setting up to use a pressure pot, thats when you are gonna start needing the bigger ones.

we have to take breaks with my 12Gal tank with a HVLP gun, so I would recomend that if you buy a tank, get at least a 20Gal, this way you can use it for anything you need (air guns ect...)

Do you have your pressure adjustment right? HVLP's do not require a whole lot to run and I have done an entire Ford Escort ZX2 with my old setup(Harbor Freight HVLP and Makita 5 gal roof nailer compressor) with only 2 breaks to actually allow the compressor to catch up. Most all HVLP's only need 50spi(7.5cfm) to operate flawlessly. Just a little benefit of having a father in the auto and spraying industries half my life I guess because I can usually make due with what baffles others. I guess it depends on the head of the compressor. The one I had did run almost constant but that little thing took it like a champ. The one I have now (75 gal Craftsman) no breaks are needed even with pretty heavy impact gun and air hammer usage.

it all depends on what paint your using... but we where using flat black and were doing multiable coats pretty much one right after the other, (shit dried quick in the 80 degree sun) so we had to take a few breaks to let the compressor cetch up... Nothing major, main point, if your gonna spend the $$ for a compressor, might as well buy one that you can use for more than just one thing...

Yessir, I am all for getting it right if you are getting it at all. I was simply saying that on a budget, you can make due with less if need be.

Welcome to my garage... 3 broken bolts and a glorified afternoon of drilling, easy-outing, tapping and dying for a valve-cover swap.... 45 minutes to do the timing on the same car the week after. I know the feeling.
