Well I have a 3/8 hose I can put high flow fittings on. I'll probably still run out of air, but its a cheap idea to try. I've never used high flow fittings. Anything on this page that'll work?

I also have to remove the regulator and try that. I tried opening it up all the way (115 psi), same result.

CFM is a measure of Volume
PSI is a measure of Pressure

These are not the same so raising the pressure will not help increase the volume.

I bought a Porter Cable 7424XP, (electric) per tomsteve's suggestion. Plenty of power, no problem stripping the 2 doors on my Duster. I used some 36 and 80. Thanks!
The rest of the car is next.
Seems I would need a bigger compressor to go air. I think for my purposes, electric is the way to go.
