OK, so I just bought a used Fuji setup.  It had the XT gun, the Super 4 Special Edition 4-stage turbine, and a bunch of extra goodies (nozzle sizes, etc.).  I was pleased when I spoke to Fuji tech support (top notch, by the way) to learn that the older Super 4 has the same motor and power and the Mini-Mite, and actually runs quieter.  They confirmed that the XT gun is as good as the one that the mini-mite has, it just takes a little more effort to adjust the spray.

I am excited to start to play with laying on finishes with this setup.  Thanks to all for the earlier advice!

In my near future, I want to respray the roof of my truck, so I may start a tread asking for advice as I come up with a game plan there.

I bought a graco 9.5 hvlp set up a while ago with 2 guns.  Not sure how good it works, not real sure where I put it to be honest.
