Re: First Timer Repair Project - 2002 Vauxhall Astra SXI
spend a lot on a gun - but one like this will be fine for most repairs; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HVLP-Pro-A...item414d340a0b
A colour scheme is something you can manage without - as long as you have a trade supplier who can make-up the paint & sell hardener, etc.
It's not insurmountable - as long as you know in advance what colours you'll need beforehand for each job.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
