In Automotive Paint Guide (Part 1), we covered most of the supplies you’ll need to lay down a professional looking automotive paint job at home. We purposely left paint guns out of the conversation, because they warrant their own discussion—a discussion that takes place in this Quick Flicks video.

In the video, Summit Racing breaks down the differences in HVLP (high volume low pressure) paint guns, including gravity-feed and siphon-style guns, to help you decide which is right for your primer, paint, or clearcoat application. They also cover the differences in paint gun tip sizes as well as a few other helpful pointers when using your paint gun.
