Re: HVLP Spray Gun Adjusting...??
Well being a car painter for alot of years Ive seen the old and the new...When spraying with any gun you have to set it to your liking so that your not getting to much orange peel(to high pressure)or drips (to much volume) and thats why you always do a test pattern on the wall or something. Its until you get the pattern you like..when painting big stuff (a whole zuk) you have to remember to overlap or get a pattern wide enough so you can overlap the spray but you also have to remember not to get to much paint at once. Remember you can always sand and add to the car but its a pain in the whole to get rid of drips...depending on what paint your using , 3 part,centary,pearls and so on, settings will change and youll have to get an eye for that. I use alot of 3 part(basecoat,pearls,clears) and eye always use enough paint so that on my 4 coat(its usually 6)I have complete coverage..but like I said many people have there own technics..
Im sure that didnt answer your question..LOL
