Wagner Control Spray

Post by leeready on September 20th 2011, 11:53 am

Has anyone on here used one of these to paint their car? I'm talking about the new version, not the old one. I'm looking to paint my friends 2000 Ford Ranger. It's a work truck so it doesn't have to be perfect. I just got done rolling my 99 Saturn SL2 and it came out good, but we don't have that much time to work on his truck. It's already white, but with some rust and a lot of scratches. We are looking to paint it gloss white.

The new version seems like it has got some good reviews. Yes, I know not for spraying a car, but nonetheless good reviews.

Here's the new one:

Here's the old one:

Here's a guy that sprayed his Z28 with the older model and it came out pretty darn good.

It would probrably work fine but my main concern would be the tip size,1.4 would be great,but I bet it has about a 1.7 tip so op would be a problem this is more suited to spray primer's just my 2 cents

I really don't know what the tip size is. This is all new to me.

What difference would it make though? Would it spray the paint out way too thick? Thus causing a lot of orange peel I assume.

I'm going to try it when I get some extra cash to blow.

I have also been thinking about spraying on with a Wagner and found that ZastyZ28 thread too. There is also a thread on this site in which a Wagner is used.

I will keep an eye on this thread and if I try it first I will be sure to let you know how it works out.

I think that would work just fine. It still uses a turbine to force air through a HVLP gun. If it is anything like the one I have, it will only have an adjustment for paint volume. Just mix the paint really thin, 50/50 paint and thinner and spray away. Check out what I did with my Wagner HVLP under projects/1991 camry.

I just picked one up at home depot. I already have a bucket of gloss black rustolem mixed with mineral spirits. I sprayed the hood I got yesterday at the junk yard. It came out decent. I have to get the hang of using it that's for sure.

I'll post pictures when I get maybe 2-3 coats on it.

How many coats should I apply? I'm thinking I should put two coats on it and wet sand with 1200 and then spray two more coats and hit it with some 2000 grit. Or should I put more coats on it?

My recent project:


It has about 7 coats on it and the final sand was with 2000 grit. I was taking a picture after installing tint on the front window. The back has tint on it now also. Very Happy
