Spray Gun Display - Tue Jan 02 2018 06:43 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.

Did you start out your career with these type of guns, Jim? LOL

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!
