Woooo Hoooo!!! Painted........

Finally got the paint and the other goodies to allow me to use my new HVLP spray gun. I learned alot by getting hands on as well as folks from the this board.
I made some mistakes, but I suppose that's all part of learning. Overall, I'm very happy with the results.

I did have a minor problem in adjusting the fluid and air settings (not psi) but hopefully I'll get the hang of it when I do the hood.

As luck would have it, after being so careful in assembling the windshield, I was moving it to a safe location in the garage and clipped something (lower right, just above the hinge holes). Looks like I might be able to polish that out after the paint is fully dry. It appears whatever I clipped left it's paint on the new paint as the mark is white. I used black primer.....

Re: Woooo Hoooo!!! Painted........

Funny you should ask. The paint guys said I didn't need a hardener. I did use the reducer. I too used Dupont Centari.
What did the paint cost you? I thought it was quite pricey, but I only bought a pint ($20).......

Re: Woooo Hoooo!!! Painted........

How do you find the cheap spray gun? I've always heard to stay away from them.

I took my buddy to Princess Auto (Like Harbor Freight in the US) and he picked up a cheap gun for the compressor his bro-in-law was gettin for Christmas..... was unsure of how it would work, as his Bro is anal about his work, but it was what he wanted for the price he had budgeted for....
