Hey, it’s Tony from LearnAutoBodyAndPaint with another Q&A series video. Today’s topic is all about 2hp 29 Gallon Air Tank And Spray Gun Settings.
Here’s a newbie question:
“I have a 2hp 29 gallon 150psi compressor and high pressure low gravity spray gun, what’s the best way to set it for paint pressure?”
If you’re using a small air compressor with a very small volume here, it’s probably pumping out very low CFM. You would use this an LVLP spray gun. HVLP spray guns will consume too much air, therefore use up your air tank really quickly.
There are great Paint Gun Articles and Videos on Zoolaa which you can check out. Also, great resources are the blogs section of LearnAutoBodyAndPaint.

Check out the high standard Atom Spray Guns on Zoolaa as well. I recommend the Atom X20 or their top of the line, the Atom X27 LVLP MP Spray Gun. It’s a great medium-grade with high performance results.
If you prefer the LVLP, which consumes less air, you’ll need to spray with about 26 to 27 psi with your low volume trigger pulled.
With LVLP Spray Guns, you can paint a motorcycle, a small panel or even half of a car. The problem with this is that your air tank is so small, you will need to play catch up and wait for your air compressor to recharge and fill up then continue painting.
I’ve painted a complete car with a 29-gallon. It’s not impossible but you need to time yourself.
