Default Spray Guns

I need to paint some panels on a couple cars and I thought it would be a good time to try to do it myself. I need a decent spray gun. There are 1000's advertised. Any pointers to one would be appreciated.

Get a HVLP Gravity feed. A cheap one will be ok to learn with. If you want a decent one for vcheap Devilbiss makes one called a "Finish Line"
tHAT IS ABOUT $110 sprays great and it comes with two different sized heads.

Tod74 is right. The two size heads will make the guy more versitile. Same gun for primer and paint/clear. The very cheap guns ($50-90)do not have servicable parts. They are disposable when broken or wore out.

I bought a gun at Harbor freight once just to spray Primer...I used it once and threw it in the trash....Why? Because the laquer thinner to clean it with cost more than the gun. :lol:
