DIY Painting?

995 Views 8 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  coachgeo

I never got around to having the Mog painted last summer.I am considering doing it myself and have the following questions.

1 Is it that hard to produce a decent result

2 Are there any specific primers that I should use to cover the horrible orange colour it is now?

3 What spray gun should I buy?

I painted my 416 with an epoxy primer, then a single stage urethane green and it looks ok. I used a 30 year old Binks 18 gun, but have recently bought a Sata HVLP, and get a much nicer finish with the new gun. A decent paint job is more about the prep work than the paint IMO, but having a decent gun will help.
