Well I need a little suggestion on what spray equipment to buy... I am thinking either Paasche H or VL or this http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Finishing_supplies/Equipment:_Spray_equipment/Spray_Guns.html
but the problem is there is so little info on the stewmac gun, and I can buy a compressor that is 1.5 hp with a 1.5 gallon tank (or a 2 HP with same size tank for a little more) that can do about 3 CFM or so. The stewmac gun has a 1.8 mm nozzle and it only needs a 1.5 CFM compressor, is that for real?

I think a VL would be nice cause I can spray sunburst and AAC color with the big needle but I won't be able to spray clear or sealer, so I still gotta use cans. However with the VL I can do art and stuff with it whereas I can't with H or a spray gun... so what should I get?

Also on compressor should I buy the biggest one I can afford or just get one that will cover most of my needs? I dont want something too big because I live in a small apartment and dont want the noise to bother anyone. Then I will have to buy a moisture trap and regulator because the compressor doesnt come with one...
