Re: Air Compressor (for auto paint)
Yeah Pearly, it really depends on how many paintjobs you want to do, how good a compressor quality, etc, etc.
My cousin is a spraypainter, and he uses a 17 cuber for his home jobs.
I actually bought a 17 cubic inch myself, originally to do the same, but ended up giving the ute anway & buying one already done!
This size is also very handy if you end up with a good collection of air tools and do a bit of work at home.
Get a reasonable sized resevoir on it, and it will last for yonks..

My XF 3 on the tree ute is ALWAYS stuck in third......

Reason: Oh, the electric motor on mine is the largest you can get for single phase, and uses a soft starter. Don't ask me the horsepower rating though!
