heres some pics , and for those who paint and use the old paint gun with the cup on the bottom they work good . but i bought this 3 gun set of Vaper HVLP paint guns this spring and used them for the first time today and they do made a difference . i know how much paint i would have used in my binks gun so i mixed up the same amount and had a lot left over when i was done . i cant wait to paint something big

I know what you mean. I just used my new low air high volume gun for the first time to paint my tractor. Bought a gallon of blue and will probably have almost half the gallon left when I'm done. Pretty impressive. Maybe I'm just an old goat but I like the balance of the under cup guns better. The lack of over spray and paint savings makes up for it in spades.

Looks like it did a nice job for you. I really should shell out the bucks and step up to using a paint gun instead of rattling my way thru life.

PS - Watch your step when you leave the shop. Apparently, you're really close to the railroad tracks.

Once I got used to the gravity "top side" cups, I'll never go back. The only drawback to them is you almost have to have a clip thingy to hold them. Mine came with such a clip, so I tighten it in my vice for a place to rest the gun.
Your paint job looks just fine Gary!

Looks like a quality job. That plow has been given a whole new lease on life.

Paint looks good Gary. I like the HVLP guns much better because of the lack of over spray and not making as much of a mess in the garage. It has been a while now since I used mine. I really need to get back to working on tractors :D

The plow sure looks nice and dirt comes off of shiny paint much easier than rusty iron.

Only ONE way to find out! If soil conditions are right, you should be able to handle it.
