Spray guns

Hey just researching some spray guns

im wanting a gun for epoxy priming, primer surfacer and possibly base coat.

im scoping out the devilbiss range and am expecting to pay $300 - $500
preferably one with interchangeable tip sizes so i only have to buy one gun.

just curious if anyone has had success with a cheaper gun if so what was it called?. I'd only be looking to use it for one complete spray job.

Body repair

Just wondering if anyone's had success treating/repairing rust around the roof gutter? (The area where the Lower half of the shell, the gutter rail and top half of the shell meet) Its a pain in the ass because it's rusted from inside out. I'm sure that there is rust inside the cavity of the body and isn't accessible without cutting open the whole section. so I'm just seeing if anyone's got some advice before I start cutting the whole section out and attempt to source/fabricate a rust repair section.

Thanks

G'day fellow OHers

I've been lurking in the background for a little while now, busy with various things, one of which is my HD yoot.

The old yoot has finally gotten in line for a freshen up and is currently being stripped down to it's birthday suit.

Age and weather has taken it's toll on the old girl, but overall it hasn't been too bad apart from the tailgate & the bonnet.

While the tailgate can get some new metal fitted to bring it back to life, the bonnet is not going to be so easy! The bonnet doesn't look overly bad from the outside, but the old cancer is attacking it from the underside and it's looking like a bit of a nightmare to repair.

So if anybody has a reasonable bonnet they're willing to part with or knows someone willing to sell theirs, could you please let me know.

How do I align nosecone. Bonnet sits high, bonnet latch sits left, so jams.

Hi, giving my hz wagon a panel and paint. Ive got a prem nosecone and radiator support, which ive put on. The problem is it doesnt quite sit right. I will be able to get it right, but thought id check in here, as folks always have some good advice. The problem is the bonnet sits high and theres a gap. I also suspect the radiator supports sits to far left, so the bonnet latch is sticking. The nose cone is pretty straight however, may have had a ding in the past. i have bought new rubber mounts, put the panels on then loosened bolts so there is some give.

Rear seats into a HT Panelvan - flying blind!

need some help here. I'm in the process off fitting a stock HT rear seat from a wagon into a Panelvan. I could do with a few photos or measurements of how the seat fits into a wagon from factory. Ie: how the locking latch works. Is this welded or bolted to the wheel arch?

If the locking brackets are bolted, does anyone have a pair available for sale?

painting selection tips

Hi Guys,

I picked up a hz one tonner cab on the weekend that is in Awesome condition.
My first question is whats the best way to treat the floor on the inside of the cab?
The inside of the cab only has a few minor spots of surface rust. Apart from the surface rust the rest of the floor has a light blue colour finish original from the factory,it almost looks like new clean metal.
I was going to sand the rust back and paint it with etch primer but the local paint shop told me to put sound deadiner straight over the whole floor and not to use ecth.
With the floor in such good condition should i leave it and just fix the surface rust areas. What paint should i use.

Rust Converter Question

Here is a pic of some surface rust on my bonnet. The left side has been treated with rust converter and then wire wheeled off.

Should I treat all the surface rust with rust converter and then remove with a wire wheel (given the the rust has now been "converted") or should I just keep wire wheeling the surface rust to remove the rust and bring to a shine that way?

Hope that makes sense!

Thanks.

Hi all,
I have a HK Premier and the interior light lens/ cover is brittle and broken. I have seen that rare spares do a round one for the HK but mine is a rectangle shape. Does anyone know where I can get a new one?
Thanks.
