Most use the size 3,
besure to get the right needle, tip and aircap.
Each needle has a separate tip and aircap.

The 1 set is the finest and the 5 being the larger. For finer details I recomend the 1 set. To control the width of the paint flow turn the adjusting wheel that is located just in front of the trigger so that the finger that retricts the trigger is all the way forward. With the 1 set this is the finest setting for a Paasche VL.

Perhaps use the 3 set to do alot of base coat and then switch to 1 to do detailing.

Jim and the fellas in wirebaits might be able to tell ya what paints would work best.
