I read through many posts I here, and still have some questions...
After many years doing the metal work on my project, I am almost to the point of needing to prime it.
Most of the car is either Picklexed (the parts that wern't replaced), or in some cases e-coated repro or NOS parts.
I have a booth lined up at a friends shop to do the finish painting, but I will be priming and doing the filler work at home.
My compressor is most likely borderline, it is a 5 HP 230 V unit, but only single stage, 11.7 scfm at 90 psi, 10.2 scfm at 40 psi. It does have a 60 gallon tank.
I don't anticipate trying to prime the whole car at once. Most likely I will clean and prep a manageable area, do any filler, then wheel it outside (I'm in the middle of some acerage), prime, then move on to the next spot.
If my compressor is insufficient to run a primer gun properly, I'd rather upgrade it, than get an inferior gun.
I like the looks of Dekups system, and would be interested in anything that speeds up clean up time, and or limits clean up chemicals and their disposal.
I should probably start a "Which primer should I use thread", it will definitely be epoxy, but I'm not sure which brand. Right now I'm leaning towards SPI as I read good things about it on the web. Seems to be many guys in many forums that want to help with any SPI issues. It will either be that or PPG. My local paint supply store is staffed by someone who seems incapable of tech support, so that resource is out.
