    Found out how to use hoppers to spray my own bedliner, now need a new air compressor. Harbor freight seems to have some large cheap ones, who else does? There best one is a 60 gal, to large for me, physicaly, but its belt driven, which I really Like since they are so dang quite. Id prefer local pickup, as these aren't light. Any suggestions?

    You might try looking at Tractor Supply. I purchased an Ingersoll Rand 80 gal. there for about $800. They had the best price that I could find. They had a fairly good selection of smaller compressors as well.

    A buddy of mine got his from Kragen Auto Parts. I though it would be a cheap POS but seams to be holding up fine. I got a Craftsman from Sears. Its like a 25 or 30 gallon. I think its 5 HP? Dunno but good enough for my needs.. Used for impact wrench and other tools, as well as spraying a car.

    Havent picked out liner yet, A friend of mine, well aquaintance that quit a shop, said to use the hoppers from spraying on sheet rock covering. Two parts are the best. Thinking about herculiner.
