It's an HVLP style sprayer. I've never used one before. I have brought in an old car hood into the garage to clean up so I can practice and try and figure this thing out...with the help of U-tube .

I'm a rattle-can expert tho!

I just started using a hvlp paint gun this summer scott. Not too hard. The thing is basically a carb. Get it tuned in and tweaked and you are set. Eastwood Company has some good videos out. I plan to take the 77 back to charcoal grey with it this summer. -Jay
