Big difference between a 40-50% solids clear and a 70% solids clear.
Not sure how satas are way over priced when I can buy a brand new 4000rp non-digital from my jobber for $30 more than len is selling the sagola 4500 non-digital.
I'd be more than happy to demo a Sagola and post my results if someone would like to send me one
we used Sikkens HS+ before the voc police took it away and it was one of my favorites.Just stating a fact about the difference % wise in low voc HS clear that I have to spray.There is a difference of $30 between guns,I can't control other jobbers prices.Why are you showing a picture of how smooth the trunk is when you had it masked off and didn't paint it??
I need to get a numer for your jobbers! We are way off on prices for an RP.
And I think the pic of the trunk was just to show the gun and material.
So you can identify the kind of towel but are too blind to see the rest. Maybe Len can post some more photos of the off the gun finish with the car in the booth, so all myths can be properly dispelled. I'm sure he had to take more than just that one photo
It is understood why the presence of polish residue is being seen. Irregular and distrupted highlights indicate a foreign substance, surface irregularity, or texture variation.
Not exactly sure what type of towel is shown on that Vette. It was stated earlier it may be a "towel or micro fibre towel". When I polish a taped up car, the recesses are where the compound is deposited, and they look like the white spots and areas in the Vette. A huge mess is not made and after a quick wipe down the areas adjacent to the dirty recesses are clean.
The body below was cut and buffed to the bury stripes. The cotton towel used was not virgin clean, nor was it a micro fiber or magic towel. Bodies get handled upon bike construction and require a final polish after completion. Most pictures do not capture the surface's polished or unpolished finish very well.
Even if the Vette was not polished, a peel free finish on a top surface is not all that impressive and not difficult for someone to achieve, even with a minimal amount of experience.
I think you guys need to chill a tad . All the paint jobs looked great to me . Better then i ever did in my youth .
But do you guys really worry about what gun you buy just because of a few hundred dollars . I mean come on !
It is too funny . Anyway all of you do great work and style when i do send you those bike parts we do want perfection .
Mooch ..carry on guys.
I agree, and I dont understand the hostility. Ive never seen anything that would make me think Len is anything but a straight up guy. Sure he sells the products, but I dont think he would scam us here. If it wasnt a good gun, he wouldnt be using it. Seems to me if there were better guns out there (for him), he would have them.

All the upper shelf guns are good .If they weren't they wouldn't be around . It is just the small fact that no one gun is right for every painter .

There is no hostility,just stating facts and being honest.Its all about the loss of internet sales that has swayed opinions.To each his own.

Are there any Jobbers in NW CT that deal with Sagola and would have a demo gun handy so I can try one out ?

Got to be someone nearby. If I recall correctly, the warehouse is in Jersey.
