Does anyone know of any type of extension that can be used on a paint gun to paint hard to reach areas? I have a end cap on a camper that I have to paint that I dont know how I am going to be able to reach the top of it. The angle of the nose on this thing wont allow me to build anything for me to stand on while I paint it. One of the guys I work with swears that he saw some type of extension that you attatch to your gun to allow you to paint big trucks and such. Saw it on one of those Pimp my truck tv shows. I have looked on the internet and cant find anything like it for a regular paint gun. I am finding them for airless sprayers but nothing for traditional automotive stuff.

Thanks

Chuck

Iwata and sata both have them for pressure pots. Not sure they will work on standard gravity feed guns.
Don't eat yellow snow!

That's how we did the heavy trucks and other awkward stuff...and dangling off a ladder like a monkey at the same time helps too

Yep, I've done a couple of 75 seater coaches using the same method. It ain't pretty but it works :)

And it was the only way to get to the middle of the roof on this van, swinging on a ladder
