Spray Gun Display - Tue Jan 02 2018 11:43 PM

I finished a built-in cabinet in my petro room and put a few of my vintage automotive spray guns on the shelves. Here are photos of two of the shelves.

The little touch-up spray guns are designed to be powered by air from your spare tire or from a fitting installed in a sparkplug hole. The detail picture shows painting a fender with "compressed air" coming from the engine, laced with gasoline.

Very cool Jim!!! Great to see them looking so old and so complete.
The whole engine/spare tire air source is crazy!!
Thanks for sharing!

Not really. smile I started out with Binks #7 spray guns and retired using SATA HVLP. The DeVilbiss Aeron gun on the left has a 1918 patent date on it. Slightly before my time. wink

I actually worked for a year in a body shop in 1968 and the old Binks #7 was what I was taught to paint with!
