The last one I did I ran two guns one one on a pole for the large flat area 917 and and the sec one was for trusses was 217
Depends on the spec. What is the environment? Is there any grease, dust, or chemical contamination? What are the expectations of the customer? How much electrical is there is power washing needs to be done? Lot's of variables involved. Is the ceiling new, bare and old, or previously painted? Dry-fall is designed to have a 6-10 foot drop depending upon the vehicle/resin type. It is designed to be productive and clean up quickly. Sometimes it has rust inhibitive characteristics. Because of its productivity characteristics, it is the nature of the beast to have a lot of overspray. It is not designed to intentionally cheat painters out of material. Corrogated ceilings, web joists, trusses I beams etc must all be estimated depending on the depth of the corrogation, and all as solid surfaces.What is your prefered way of cleaning before painting?
Always used a regular 517 in a 2 finger gun, attached to 200' of hose fed by a gas/electric convertible Graco, turning the gun sideways along any narrower angle iron bits.What is your technique and tip size for the fastest way you do it?

We use to do this in the GM plants and factories up in Ohio. They called it a Chicago line. Big Deasle compressor outside long hoses going down to a crimped 4' copper tube with a shut off valve. Works great!!!!Always used a regular 517 in a 2 finger gun, attached to 200' of hose fed by a gas/electric convertible Graco, turning the gun sideways along any narrower angle iron bits.
Go and blow, stand on the trigger and never let go.

is this a question?OK, we have a potential dryfall bid coming up. We have established a good relationship with a local plant manager and have painted there for the past couple of weekends.
We have talked about dryfall and I want to get a better idea of how to bid. I have heard .40 to 1 per square ft and gave him a ballpark number at about .55. He said we are first choice for the dryfall, but I need to be at least really close to the other bidders when the time comes. 88k+ is the square ft.
