    Best compressor for under $500?

    Hey guys, I'm looking for a good air compressor. I'll be using it for a bit of everything, including painting an entire car. I'm hoping to find something with enough CFM, PSI and capacity to spray an entire car in one session (one coat of course). What do you recommend?

    Okay, well, along with bumping this, do I need a "Dual Stage" compressor if I get a high capacity one?

    Anyone?

    there is a couple of body shop owners on this forum one of which is exvelocity, pm him.

    but when i was shopping for one, i was told to shoot for 20 cfm for painting.

    if your looking to save money and get a quality compressor you can also try to get a used one from the places that rebuild them, buy used ones etc.
