Wish you and I were local to each other. I'd have a lot of welding work for you. Great work.
But can you not have the muffler before the subframe? It will still donits job but means less bulk to mess sround with in the back end,Yes I need the muffler, it used to be my DD but now it’s my weekend worrier, I want to keep away unwanted people which here in Calif. is freaking strictly when it comes to noise and stuff.
I’m more of having fun with it but at the same time, keep it my way or the way I would love to see it (appearance wise).
I will look down there again to see if I can manage to make it work, I have a Varex which is huge compare to others, but hope I can manage to make it work.

You just got to get very creative and think of the impossible which is not always easy to do
Well i got my refund from the 2K spray can place. So i decided ro jump on it since they had them back in stock (just) but i got a paint gun kit. I added an extra gun and nozzle size so i have a wider range of use.Decided to put the hood on for now and i will reslreay it at a later date with a proper spray gun and paint. Not gonna waste time and money on cans that dont do good. It looks nice in the pics but the chap next door saw the hood and sai he could see the surface finish is not great. So thank riolett for some expensive half working cans
It looks good with the vent and today i started cutting up the fenders so i might be able to get those back on shortly. Shall see how time goes

Its a small compressor. Maybe 80 liters from memory. It handles an impact gun and other air tools ok and gives it a good go but for those they use a bunch of air.Those are really nice guns. How big is the air compressor you are going to use? I have a small one and didn’t keep up, I paint some panels and it end up like wrinkle paint.

1, filter/water trap
1, additional water trap pre gun
1, 1.3mm gun
1, 1.8mm gun
1, 1.4mm nozzle kit for one of the guns
I dont currently have alot of spare time for this yet but it gives me time to find some paint thats good quality
I shall get open pics of the actual guns on the weekend. They feel really nice and was not expensive at all and the reviews online from people who spray as a job/living say they do a good job for the price
that is an air tool quality water trap. Spray quality would be made by Sharpe

im not looking for a pro job and the comp is old and i will be getting a new one at some point for the new shed but for now im just going to see what this does. the filteration is a 2 stage but seperate as it collects on the entry to the gun and then half way in the lines so it gives it ample time to cool down. one day i will get a really nice screw compressor but right now its not in the budget nor space allows currentlyFor painting you should be using a 80 gallon with a 2 stage compressor with the highest cfm you can find. The smaller the storage tank size along with smaller compressor size it will run longer and pressure and cfm will vary throwing off your gun settings. The compressor will generate a lot more heat since it will thier will be more demand on it and cause alot more wear on the compresor. So change the oil more frequently. Also invest in a good quality water/air separator and a oil/air separator this is a must. When running a small compressor it generates a lot more heat with that, the hot air cools and creates more condensation and the compresor tolerances change quite a bit from continuous use,so thier will be more oil in the air line. Don't skimp on filtration especially with a smaller compresor. And the filtration should be before the the airline to keep the airline oil and water free as possable.
Bump stear kit..... and front and rear upper arms... Wait a min ¿¿¿¿ No tube front subframe ??? Not installed yet???
Yeah yeah i also lag behind i got all the frame bits made just not got a decent time to make it.And stock sway bars??? Chop Chop.
Dont know whyni never saw this post so im sorry for not replying sooner!If I had to buy a new gun right now, I dont know what I would do. Ive been using the same Devilbiss (GTi Millennium Edition) for over 15 years and have never had a gun with a better feel. I know 2 other guys who do this just as much as I do who say the exact same thing.
Make sure you have a strong air supply and make sure that air is clean & dry. Things can go wrong in a hurry costing you both time and money.
Surprised you attempted an entire hood with cans........you will be much happier now if you can get a good setup going for the gun.
In case you are unsure, 1.3 is good for all base/clear
1.8 would be for mud. Good luck!
