    I need suggestions. My brother has a 1999 Miata that he's been talking about painting himself. He's turning 40 at the end of the month and I'd like to get him something he can use that would maybe be better than the one you'd find at Home Depot. Guns, hose, compressor combos. We are both DIYers and aren't too concerned with effing it up - it's more about the project vs the quality of the job, but I'd like to get him off on the right foot with gear, so of all the things he has to swear about is the process, not the equipment.

    Wow. Nice. Do you do body shop/ repair work or custom cars/ restorations or the like? Just curious.
