Eastwood Paint Gun


As the warm weather is around the corner, I wanted to make sure I’m fully set to paint the interior of the airplane. First and foremost, I needed a new paint gun. After some research, I decided on the Eastwood Concours HVLP gun. It has gotten excellent reviews, and is well priced compared to the DeVilbiss and Iwata paint guns. I didn’t want to order online though, so I decided to do a road trip to Pottstown PA, the home of Eastwood.¬†Drive time was about 2 hours and 15 mins, but luckily my buddy Mike was nice enough to join me, so we were able to bullshit most of the trip.

The Eastwood folks were super helpful. They demonstrated the gun, and proper cleaning technique. Additionally, they gave us a tour of the facility and several projects they have underway. They also do affordable classes from time to time on a variety of topics. I definitely will be back in the future.

Best part? There is a brew pub (SlyFox Brewing) and an airport (Pottstown РN47) within walking distance!

I bought the Concours HVLP with 1.2mm, 1.4mm and 1.8mm tips. I also bought the cleaning kit.
