    What I like about the vids is that they are normal people doing the job in a real paint shop, swearing, taking the piss and everything else.

    Thinking about going up the garage and taking a pic of my spray guns now.. Its been a while since I looked at them.

    Great post! I, for one, don’t have a clue about paints.

    That's why we're here, to learn and to share.

    Concerning your question about the half tanks. You can search for real tanks on e-bay, I sometimes saw there real Harley's tanks for acceptable price. Besides, you could find the manufacturer of custom tanks (or just regular tanks) and ask if they would sell to you those side panels of the tank. They will be steel, that's just great.

    Thanks for the info. I can probably get a tank pretty cheap but I’ve never done any automotive prep and have no clue. I want the half tank to paint for my brother in law who owns a bike shop. Thought it would make a nice gift. I’ll keep digging around. Thanks!

    That's quite simple, just follow the technology. Search on youtube the topic is pretty much covered.
    One of the videos:



    That was my plan:) Not to buy fiberglass demo models though, but to make them myself. Good thing is, it's possible to make the model of any size I'd ever want, then to make a mold from it, then to make demo shapes as many as I'd need. Definitely, for the price of materials. I've already searched on youtube. A year ago. Nothing's done to the date:) But understanding of the process is what's in my mind.

    I’m leaning toward the plastic sporty half tanks, 3 for $90. Not my favorite tank shape but somebody likes them:D

    Just remembered one thing. As I remember, @J000seph bought somewhere in the US white plastic sportster tanks (demo) for reasonable price, you could PM him and ask the question.

    Ok while I was up the garage fixing the door latch on my car I took a pic of my spray guns just to add them to this thread.

    Not that I get much chance to use them.

    From top left to bottom right:

    DeVilbiss Sri Pro 0.8
    DeVilbiss Sri Pro 1.0
    Walcom Geo FX92 1.2
    No Brand Red Mini gun 0.8
    No Brand K-3 0.5
    No Brand F75 1.3
    No Brand HVLP 1.4 & 2.0
    DeVilbiss Aerograph MPS nozzle ?

    The Aerograph MPS is still as I got it, never used it but does need stripping, cleaning and making it nice and of course making sure it works. Haven't had time or courage to do it yet.
