Im not a big fan of stickers on cars but that is very tastefully done the colours are nice and it looks very well if you stick to that it would be sweet

When i took the doors off i noticed the bottom edge was pretty rusty which was hard to see when the door was on the car,
The passenger door was in the pretty bad state, driver one only had 2 little marks on it.

What's the spec on your air compressor?

Would 100 liter, 3hp be OK for spraying ?

Re: MR2 road car build + 3SGTE engine 8 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 72
Im not sure what would be ok for spraying im only doing the priming.
Im using an ingersoll 200L 5.5hp
Yours should be ok if it builds up 8bar, the only problem you could have is stopping and waiting every 5 min till the pressure builds up

the size of the compressor needed will depend on the spraying equipment being used. 100 litre would be ok for a simple pot gun but if you will be using anyything else you would need to check what the equipment recommends.

You'll be grand.. I use a small 22 L electric compressor with a regulator.. works perfect and pressure never drops... so a 100 L will be the very best..

I don't actually have one yet. I was looking at a few and when you go larger than 100 liters the price of the compressors seems to get very expensive.

You could buy 2 100L compressors, a good one and a cheap one with a broken motor and just link them together and have 200L.
