What Size Tip For Spraying?

Post by T-Bucket Bob 23 on May 3rd 2009, 10:40 pm

Hey Guys,

I have 3 HLVP spray guns in the garage. Tip sizes 1.4; 1.7; and 2.0. What size tip would be good for spraying and what would be a good mixture for these tips?

Hi Bob
1.7 and 2.0 are heavy or thick paint like primer and the 1.4 is for the color coats or the thinned out paint. I never sprayed rusto but I would start at 4 paint to 1 primer and thin ftom there.
