A MUST HAVE cheapie spray gun for using upside down.

I have to tell you if you are doing any painting or priming this is a MUST HAVE gun! I have a whole arsenal of spray guns, some costing many hundreds but this stupid $40 gun just blew my mind!

I got it for primer only, polyester primer actually, it's got a 2.0 tip. I went to prime the inside of the cab and have another for general priming that was going to grab but saw this and the tilting cup and it hit me how useful this may be. Now mind you, I don't believe I have ever even used this gun where I moved the cup out of it's normal position. I just thought it moved and it mounted that way because it was an odd gun, it never occured to me that you could do what I did today.

I rotated the cup to spray the gun upside down! OMG! Look at the photos of the areas down in the bottom of the cab corners. I looked with a flash light and was blown away that it was TOTALLY coated inside there!

Re: A MUST HAVE cheapie spray gun for using upside down.

Yeah, it's so damn funny how I regarded it as sort of a pain in the ars. It would loosen up all the time (it's got a big wing nut) and I would be tightening it often. Then this happens and I want to kiss the damn thing!

Getting down in those holes had literally kept me up at night. I made a tool to sort of do it with a rubber hose on a underseal gun. I bought a bunch of throw away brushes at HF a few days ago. I had plans on how I would fight my way in there. Then today I get this gun set up and WHAM it is done just like that!

Re: A MUST HAVE cheapie spray gun for using upside down.

Right on! Now remember it's a large tip 2.0 so painting for a nice finish isn't going to work so good. But doing what I did here, PERFECT. Or painting thick primer like Polyester which is what I bought it for is perfect.

Re: A MUST HAVE cheapie spray gun for using upside down.

All I simply did was removed the cup from the gun, and screwed onto that fitting a female connector for a hose.
I then got a quart can and drilled a hole through it for a male fitting for a hose. I made a gasket out of rubber and put a large flat washer on the fitting, put a nut on the back and tightened it up good so it wouldn't leak.

I made a funky little bracket tied to the can with a hose clamp. Then screwed that to the dash where the windshield moulding screw hole.
