If you’re a gear head like me, then you don’t settle for anything less than the best equipment. It makes your job easier while producing professional results.

The DeVilbiss FinishLine FLG4 is a great car paint sprayer you’ll want when you need superior results for multiple applications  while still managing your budget.

It might be more than the average DIY finisher needs for a vehicle or two, but who cares?  Get the best for yourself.

If you run a small shop or detail business, or you’re looking for the best automotive paint gun for beginners, you’ll love what this model can do.

Why Use the FinishLine?

Using the FinishLine will help you to get pro results when you paint your car.  The paint atomization with this gun is fantastic, resulting in minimal overspray.  

It lays down a nice soft finish, so would be great for a set of cabinets.  The FinishLine also sprays latex so don’t limit yourself to automotive applications with this gun.

You’ll be happy you shelled out the extra cash for this spray gun which is light years ahead of the much cheaper units you’ll find at your local store.

The 13 CFMs required at 23 PSI to operate this gun mean you will need a decent compressor set up to avoid waiting for your compressor to catch up.

Novice painters can get stunning results for much less than professional grade guns that we tested like the IWATA LPH400.    Don’t get us wrong, the IWATA guns are in a class of their own, but the FinishLine gets it right for the hobby painters out there.

For the price, it lays down clear super smooth; you almost don’t have to polish it afterwards.  But do it anyways.

Troubleshooting Your DeVilbiss

Make sure you give this gun a good cleaning before using in case any contaminants are left over from manufacturing.  

If paint drips when you pull the trigger make sure to clean out the inside of the fluid cap where the needle sits and the needle as well using lacquer thinner.

Make sure to take apart your gun after each use and clean it, instead of just flushing it out.  Paint will build up on the inside.

The tip of this gun is on super tight.  While it comes with a tool to remove it, that only seems to work once you’ve initially gotten it off the first time.  

Careful here, you might end up breaking the tip if you reef on it.  We used a wrench with gentle constant pressure and a vice and it came off.
