Need to get an new gun for my Tahoe refinish project and I was looking at the Eastwood LT100 because of it's low cfm requirements. I am going to use AE due to cost and my total lack of experience with BC/CC. I've read good reviews on this gun. Have any of you guys used one or have any other suggestions?
Thanks

Be careful buying a gun strictly on CFM consumption.
Usually low cfm requirements means it will need to make
a lot more passes to cover a panel, thus still
using a lot of CFM.
My biggest gun CFM takes twice the air of my smaller gun,
but it actually doesn't run my compressor any more than the smaller
one because it will cover a panel twice as fast.
My compressor seems to actually run less overall with the
bigger gun.
Something to think about. :mrgreen:
