Wagner Double Duty Sprayer

Post by Stingroo on March 7th 2012, 3:30 pm

The sprayer is the Wagner 0518050 Control Spray Double Duty Paint Sprayer (can't post links yet, oops).

Anybody ever use one of these? I couldn't find any topics on it or anything. I saw it first from a guy who uses it to spray Plasti Dip onto cars, and I figure it should be able to handle paint.

The plan is to spray thinned Rustoleum satin black.

Here's my big giant canvas:





I'm hanging new fenders soon (both are dented), and fixing a small rust spot in the rear quarter, and then I'll be ready to roll.

I also have the purple Harbor Freight HVLP gun, and a compressor (but the compressor is only 15 gallons, so I don't think it will be enough.


Thoughts, guys? Smile I plan on doing this over Spring Break, which for me starts on 3/17. It's go time. Smile

Search in the projects section for a guy named nisbo (did a 91 toyota). Your on the impala ss forum right? Im thinking of doing mine blue like his or gloss black.

I think the guy that did the plastidip is using a higher control model I believe (like a 518080), but I plan to get the same model u have and try it.

Oh, jeez.


Well, I can tell you, the gun works great. I did it.


Here are some pics from start to finish:

Started by using an eraser wheel to remove the beltline trim:


Sanding and scuffing in progress...


Hood sanded and removed, some high/low spots and stuff. Headlights removed, charcoal canister deleted.


New bumper cover from Sprocket, scuffed and ready to mount. At this point, I think our neighbors thought we were rednecks. Car parts EVERYWHERE.


Battery removed to prevent theft. Getting closer...


Front clip removed! Triumph over rusty bolts! TAKE THAT, RUST BELT!


Car on jacks, dad helping to grind some rust from the wheel wells which got rattle canned.


Starting to look like a car again...


First test panel... still wet. Looks promising!


No in-progress pics, was afraid of getting paint on the camera lens... sooooo...

Done.

All back together and at school.


May have a new appreciation for my red interior...


Not 100% perfect, but hey. I think I can pull that tailgate dent out.


Taking over the commuter parking lot.


Mmmmm yes.


D-pillar rust fixed. For my first bondo job ever, it's not bad. Will maybe re-visit in summer.


So that's what I did on MY spring break. What about your kids?

Wow, that turned out great. Is that plasti dip or flat rustoleum?

You should post this on the imp forum.

Satin rusto.


And it's on the wagon forum. Smile I don't hang on the SS form very much. Only to browse buy/sell section.
