    Question

    I notice the number 368032N. Is there a difference compared to 368033? I'm thinking maybe the color? I want black.
    Thanks

    I'm looking at Eastwood's DeVilbiss two gun set. Requires 13 CFM at 30 PSI. Do I just look for a compressor with these specs no matter what the capacity & HP are?

    Update

    I just thought of something. If I farm out the finish coast & only do the primer (one section at a time as I said) can I get away with a smaller compressor?

    Simply put, I can't afford to have someone else prep my car. My plan was to prep the car, one section at a time. I just need to know the correct procedures. Problem is, everyone seems to have a...

    Question

    Can give me some details on "scuff it"? And...are you saying that I can apply my finish coast directly over the scuffed paint? I'm a true rookie.

    Question

    Do I need to go down to the metal if the paint surface is in good shape? Can I wet sand after sanding with say, 80 grit to smooth it out.
