IS this Your product Robert ?
Hey bud how the hell are you ??
Like Len said I would be sure the vent is open. You didn't say what kind of primer so the tip size could also be a factor. If it wasn't epoxy primer I always use...
Hey kcode and welcome to the board! Good lookin project !
There are so many forums out there that are just for mechanical stuff I don't see the point of it here. Really this is a auto body forum ....
If I was going to buy another gun it would be the Plus ! I think it is the best bang for the buck. Parts if needed can be gotten something you can't say for a lot of guns on the market.
What air pressure you running ? size of hose ? connectors ? to me something just don't sound right.
Looks Great Shawn! Look forward to catching ya at one of the shows !
Hey Rick, How the hell are ya ?? I agree with the post above you shouldn't have to buff it that long to burn through. Got that Ranchero on the road yet ?
IF your using metallic paint don't do it in sections ...... :nono:
Your welcome Deacon ! I'll be expecting more photos when assembled .. :D
I didn't post them all more on his link .
Good Job deacon
Harry are you getting it in OR?
Looking better all the time !!!
You can never get a compressor to big . IMO
Hope all works out well for you and don't forget pic's when done !
After reading this thread here what I think .
1. need at least a 1.8 tip
2. Need at least 30 psi with trigger pulled.
I have not read what kind or how big the compressor is . This is a big...
Looks nice ! You gonna make it to the blackberry festival ?
Thats what I was thinking also . Without a big enough compressor it will slow down the whole process .
ummmmm I think you been out in the sun to long ..... :D
Calling for mid 90's all week and 100+ by the weekend . To dang hot to do anything. ..
How old is the video and can you get parts for the walcoms ? The Dev Plus is a great buy for the $ and you can get parts .. To me it's a no brainier ....
Looks nice, hope ya got strong arms ....
This would be the smart thing to do .
I have them on mine and they came with compressor when I bought it . I think they do help with noise .
Take a look here :...
You need to paint the seems before you apply the sealer Don't put it on bare metal. I used Zero Rust to coat the seams first then applied the sealer and painted over it .
What gauge is the drop cord and how long ?
If I was gonna use a drop cord with my stud gun it would be at least a 14 gauge cord no more than 15 ft . I have a 12 gauge cord 12 ft long that I use...
Hey Shawn , Looks good . Working on a Ranchero my self but have had a few health set backs. I'm in Roseburg .
Just another suggestion let the seal set in the sun a while it will help soften them up some .
I use Kirker epoxy and like it .
If you thin it it may work . I used a 1.6 and it did ok but I thinned the zero rust with lacquers thinner .
I would use the 1.2 tip for the clear .
For the color your shooting I would go to 600 . Silver metallic can be a bitch...
Hey Larry , There is to email notification . Click on user cp at top then options you'll see it there to turn it off or on ....
I use a old siphon touch up gun I think it has a 1.6 tip . A lot is going to depend on how much you thin it . The bigger tip the less it needs thinned and the better coverage IMO .
I like spraying it I feel the spray can get into places you can't with a brush .
PW click on persons name and a drop down menu will come up . PM means personal message or private message, when menu opens you will see send private message.
Hope this helps .
I have good results using this wire it helped with my burn through also . I use a Century 110 welder with gas.
I too have a Century welder for about 10 years now . Lincoln bought Century out and still has parts if needed.
Welcome to the forum ! Lot of good info here and people willing to help . Enjoy!
The one I got from Lowes was rated at 240lbs psi Works fine ......
From what I see once you blast it you will only have bigger holes. Best way to fix it is to cut it out and re skin it . Do it right and not half assed it will come back to bite ya later on .
I have used both but Zero Rust is what I'll use from now on . If ya look at my web sight every thing painted black is Zero Rust. Another advantage is I can buy it local .
Epoxy Primer .
I have used them and do recommend them ! Larry is also a member here .
My 65 Ranchero has a lot of places brazed on it I think it was factory done back then but like what Phil said if it ain't broke don't fix it .
Henry I think this is what Ryan was refering to .

Hello ecsk and welcome to the forum ! I highly doubt that you will get the results your after with a Wagner electric spray gun . The gun can not atomize the paint fine enough to lay it smooth. I'm...
I'm sorry but to me doing that doesn't make any sence . Good luck with it .:eek:
