stoned on solvents

Need some advice on painting  . . .

Want to paint a car (Wife's Maz*a), and need some info on the care, feeding
and handling of spray guns.

Have a small compressor (2hp?), and hoses, regulators, and even some
old-fashioned spray guns BUT no real idea on how to use them, pressures,
mixing paint with reducer, how all this stuff works.

Anyone have a URL for spray painting 101, or if you're bored over the
holiday, feel like typing in some instructions?

After I learn how to do this on her car, then I'm going to think about
doing my 86 5KS, because the clearcoat is starting to look really shabby
and is hurting my polished image ;-)

Happy New Year, all!

Best Regards,

Mike Arman
