Airless Spraypainting

Im looking for the cheapest way to respray a general runaround car, nothing show qual needed. Is Airless spray painting out of the question?

Its a lot cheaper than buying a big enough compressor and gun.Im not after any special paint just a basic white enamel.

Would it look ok done in airless?

Re: Airless Spraypainting

damn mate..........what you painting your house. Have you ever used an airless spray its not like a conventional spray there is no way the same amount of play in agjustment. You would need to stand about 2m away to spray.

Try hiring a booth for the day cost you about $100 for the booth. They have all you need compressor, gun thinners and maybe even the paint. Dont use enamel. Use acrylic its easy to spray and touch up.

Re: Airless Spraypainting

the booth is your best bet for saving money. Do all the prep before hand drive in and a couple of hours later you drive home
