The topcoatreview.com gang goes deeper into testing new paint related tools and products to share on this site and in Scott Burt’s published column “From the Field”, which appears in each issue of American Painting Contractor Magazine.

Since HVLP paint sprayer reviews are popular reading within our site, we thought we’d make it easier for folks to find visual and archived info on the topic.

We look forward to continuing to work with contractors and manufacturers to further bridge the gap between what we need and what they make.

Check out the official Topcoat Review HVLP Archives to read about all of our HVLP paint reviews and updates from our testing over the past few years.

    I’m a hobbyist, refinishing my old Miata. I am trying to figure out the minimum CFM output of air needed from my HVLP compressor, to do a good job painting my car with an HVLP gravity fed gun using a 1.3 nozzle for topcoat. Any advice?
    My HVLP setup is a Capspray CS10000
    I see a lot of advice about gun pressure settings, compressor pressure settings, but nothing about needed cfm from the compressor to keep me from making sure I don’t run out of air.

      Ahh…my wife has an old Miata, so I can see the appeal. I don’t do anything with gravity guns, so I am speaking completely out of school, but based on our experiences in other compressor driven spraying. We find that tank capacity is the biggest deal. We recommend about 33 gal. If there is ANY disruption to the flow, it shows up instantly in “winks” in the spray pattern.
