Default Finishpro 395 upgrade?

Hey all you 395 AAA guys.
I have the original version.
I'd like to get the smart comp control and new hose style for my sprayer.
What all do I need to retrofit my older unit?
Will my g40 gun mod to work with the integrated air valve?
Also will be getting the flat tip conversion for shooting clear.
Anyone done this?
Thanks!

I was told by two different graco reps there is no way to retro fit the old G 40 to the new hoses. I made sure I expressed my displeasure with them and how stupid it is to make a $700 gun a required upgrade to get the improved hoses.

Still think Graco owes the beta purchasers of the FinishPro a free upgrade to the flat tip. Also offers beta testers of the original proshot a new unit.

I will never but a first model of something new from Graco again.

Yeah I agree. I may beat my local graco reps ear about that. My AAA with racx worked amazing in the beginning. I've never been able to dial in like that since. I've read flat is the way to go. It's got a few miles on it now and I use it for everything. I wanna upgrade this one and buy another pump for dirty work. Keep my Aaa for what's it's best at.
The original hose is so cumbersome.
Can you modify the end of the new hose to interface with the old style air section?
I'm NOT paying to buy a new g40 for that little part
Originally I was going to purchase a 495 and a 9.5 hvlp and then I saw the AAA. I was sold on the spot. But now here I am.....
