Good Afternoon, Just returned from my other fabricating job, they keep me busy. Lynne/Frank, thanks, If everything goes as planned it'll be done by the end of August, baring any problems. Here's how we installed the crossmember.

Good Morning, Frank Thanks, I got the first crossmember up by the cab, it holds the front of the fuel tank, next one back is the one I built. Well all set this AM to put a second coat of base color on, I'm still getting used to the new HVLP spray gun so I need to lay another coat of color. gotta get with it the time is up on the catalyst wait time, now I can spray.

New gun? HVLP? What did you get? How do you like it so far? (Can you tell I am excited about this? )

Hi Charles, A friend of mine had this and never used it, price was right, (free, he really owes me) and I knew it was a good gun, it's a Sata, can't remember the model # it's a few years old but was still in the packaging. It does such a good job of atomizing that I didn't lay enough base color so when I started to wet sand to lay the clear I broke thru in a couple of spots , so I just finished sanding and put two more coats of base on, still learning . I'm the king of looking for a good tool that people can afford, so I also purchased two of the pro models of Harbor Freight HVLP, a touch up and a full size, I haven't used them yet, I'll try them out on my 50's Massey Ferguson tractor when I paint that later this year.

Sata makes a good gun. HVLP takes a bit to get used to if you're used to a standard gun. I sprayed with Binks 7s for a long time, first time with HVLP was a run and sag festival.

Terry,

SATA is definitely good stuff. Some of mine are C.A.T. brand and perform very well also. I also have a couple of no-name, el-cheapo HVLP guns that I get acceptable results from. They came with two of my pressure pot systems as a package deal. ($140 for pressure tank, hoses, and gun, including shipping for each system.) OK, that was a gloat.

I expect with some practice and experimenting you will quickly learn how the HVLP performs. The transfer efficiency for HVLP is supposed to be much higher than a conventional gun. That means more finish goes on the part, less in overspray, and money saved.

HI!

I have a Harbor Freight HVLP set, works well. I've used a Sata,,,,, and they are not the same, but the HF does what I need. I usually do bike stuff, so small jobs.

Yes, I also made a some runs!!!!!

Good Evening, DB, My whole time was spent spraying with a conventional gun, this was the first time with an HVLP, no runs just not thick enough . Charles, this time came out much better, I'm a fast learner when it come to that stuff, slowed down my stokes which laid more paint. Lloyd, did you buy the "Purple" gun or the pro model? Started the POR 15 painting on the frame tonight, that's a slow process.

Do you do mind melds to pass that information on? I would not mind learning at the foot of the master.
