    Default New to painting. All advice welcomed(please)

    Hello everyone. I am not sure if Iím in the right place or not. I recently took an interest in painting. However, not so much in buildings as I am already pretty good at that. I wouldnít call myself a professional but it does look good in the end.

    The idea came to me that I would like to paint the rims on my car, however.. I did not want to use rattle cans. I wanted to buy a HVLP setup. Whether it was anodized paint or powder coating Iím not sure. Thatís why I am here. If you could spare a couple moments of your time to help out a novice painter I would greatly appreciate it as I have went to the local shops and no one really wants to share anything with me. (Frustrating)

    What would I need for a basic HVLP setup? Compressor, rags, etc

    How do I know when to mix paint with lacquer or thinner etc?

    Best types of HVLP?

    Really ALL advice is welcome. I would like to start painting my rims and maybe my friends and if I find it to be enjoyable maybe I will move along to other small parts of automobiles.

    (Please take it easy on me, I am a novice)

    Thanks for reading!
