    I have Johnny...looked every where..the gun I broke is a (concours 2 HVLP)...
    ive got a guy trying to talk me into a (black widow HTE)...so ive been looking at HTE guns ..
    he said comparing HTE to HVLP is like comparing BBs(HTE) to bowling balls(HVLP), in how they spray...just not sure how the HTE will do with single stage paint

    I'm more than likely going to buy the same gun, it'll be for my oldest sons project planning to pick him up something for his 14th bday in December.. I know where a pretty decent '58 Travelall is I've been trying to talk him into it for a while now.

    6bt...58 t-all...wow..that would be sweet...dont let it get away..would love to see some pics of it..
    I'm gonna test this gun out. And if I like it I'll probably go back and get the black widow hvlp also..then I'll have 2 guns, and I'll use the hte for paint and the hvlp for pimer...the hte only comes with a 1.3 tip
    The hvlp has a 1.7 tip..I couldnt find a bad review on this gun..often compared to sata , iwata, and prolite..

    This is when even a simple job like painting the steering column feels like a win..!!
    Not sure what they painted this thing with at the factory but the old paint looked like it was 1/8" thick..got it sanded off and shot it with some semigloss...

    I love that lightening bolt.. I told my buddy who's known the owner forever to hold it for me because I'm planning to pick it up when I finish my D-series. Didnt get any photos last time I saw it but next time I'm in Tempe (20 miles from me) I will be sure too if I'm not towing it home at that point.

    You will need to remove one of the gloves and attach your new spray gun to the lanyard! Maybe, just maybe, it'l survive until Columbus is finished?

    Haha...there you go..show us all up by dragging one out of the ashes..and making it cool..
    Your idea of buildable is starting out with 2 IH bolts and half a fender
    My idea of a buildable one ,is one that's in showroom condition....haha
