If you are expecting a "A-to-Z recipe for a perfect paint job" type of book, this is not what you want.
I am disappointed. I give it 2 stars because the author made some efforts about keeping this book visual with a lot of pictures.
I'm running and LVLP gun from Grizzly Industrial and a 30 gal air compressor making 6.5cfm at 90psi.
Really needed some help getting the settings and clearcoat temp correct so I didn't have to wet sand my wife's Mitsubishi bumper all day.
