I've got my hands on a really nice two stroke airless paint sprayer. Has anyone every used one of these to paint their cars with? I notice that it is adjustable down to a really low pressure, which leads me to believe that it should work, but have never tried it before.

last one I had (a Wagner) I stomped on it. Yours may be higher on the food chain, but the best results are with a regular spray gun (probably $150 for a decent one)

Obviously you won't get a show car finish. But if you aren't snooty or snobby about paint, giving your old car a healthy coat using an airless sprayer will keep the rust bugs at bay. I've run urethane primer through my $100 Wagner. Worked just fine, though you have to mind the drips from the nozzle. If you're using incorrect equipement, no booth, etc., don't bother with expensive paint. Go for tough, but not show-car-nifty. I'm going to experiment with some industrial paint.

Personally I like the 'suede' look that you see on hardcore old-timey street rods. I've graduated to a cheap air gun, but my 2002 will someday soon bring back fond memories of your favorite backyard paint job.
