For the value, this is definitely a paint sprayer to consider, coming in at a reasonable price range with enough features to make it worthwhile (especially if you already own your own air compressor).

One thing to note, is that if you expect to do a lot of painting with this unit you should purchase at least a 2 horsepower air compressor to ensure you have the air supply required for this tool. Additionally, due to the lack of reversible tips included with this kit, you should make sure to clean the spray gun and tool after each use or you may face issues with debris and clogs, as well as a diminished level of quality in the end coat.
Overall we suggest this as an option to those looking for a sprayer that’s multi-use, as this tool can complete everything from base coast to finish with little need for additional tools or tips.
Concluding, you should consider these and other factors when purchasing a paint sprayer for cars, including budget, quality, job requirements and experience level.
