    out of cusiousity, what is the best budget set up, the HLVP gun, and what trype of compressor to get, there are so many specs out there.

    I was thinking of getting one of wagner main sets, and getting a separate gun, but i am just clueless.

    If you're going to be doing a lot of painting you should invest in an air dryer. It goes inline with the supply valve and takes all of the moisture out of the air so it doesn't get shot out of the other side. Look for a compressor that can do 90+ CFM . Most paint guns will have different CFM requirements at different air pressures. Different paints require different pressures. The longer you spray the more air you're going to need. If you never go above 90CFM and that's what your compressor is rated for and it's constant duty then you'll never have any problems.

    heres just a quick link I googled for the sem stuff. Note - I have never done business with these people. You should be able to pick this stuff up locally at any auto body supply shop for a good price.

    That stuff works well, they carry it in spraycan and mixed form. Just make sure to prep the plastic well. No sanding is neccessary, sand free prep workks flawlessly. Just get the pieces completely spotless, then remove oils etc with alcohol. Let dry thoroughly. Give a coat of sem plastic preplet dry .Coat of sand free. Let dry. Then sem paint. Beautiful scratch resistant outcome

    the dash came out great! It seems a shame to put that nos panel in there. have you thought about using the gauge pod for a n2o pressure gauge and maybe putting those toggles/led's in the open area around it?

    Scott, do you like having 900+ psi hoses routed around inside your car? I don't. There's a reason that you're not supposed to have a fuel pressure gauge or nitrous pressure gauge in the cabin, if a line busts, you're SOL.

    certainly not.. that is why they have electrical gauges for this type of application.

    The electrical gauges suck for liquid pressure gauges.
