Hi, i need a little help buying a air compressor for a car paint job? i was wondering what's the best size for doing yourself paint, etc... i don't want a expensive one just one that just get the job done. i know it just going to be a one time thingy... well, any advice would be gladful and thank...
Painting requires lots of air! I want my compressor to have a MINIMUM 10 gallons or more capacity and provide 6-7 CFM at 90 PSI. The duty rating should be at least 50%. Many compressor have a label on them showing what uses they are well suited for. Start with the gun, the air requirements are usually printed on the packaging, use those as minimums! Good luck!

You will hear a variety of opinions on this subject...but I personally would recommend a compressor with at LEAST a 60 gallon tank with 5hp motor...you don't want to risk ruining a paint job because you didn't have enough air...bigger is always better! Bottom line, you will most likely be using air tools and sanders so you will want to have somewhere around 15psi @ 90 to get the job done. Good luck.
