    HVLP Sprayers

    Are there any tips for spraying Plasti Dip via a air compressor powered HVLP gun as opposed to the electric ones DYC sells?

    tips are as follows, don't waste your time, lol. no seriously it works, but you will spend a lot of time messing with it for the dip to come out consistently, and also if you run out of air before you finish a coat, your screwed. it can be done, but i recommend having a 50gal or bigger compressor and a 1.5-2.0 tip. or you could just get an electric one.

    yeah i figured, i have a few, i tried to dip my roof with it, and my issue was, i kept running out of air, and it would shoot out chunks unexpectedly. so i bought an electric one.
