    There was no way that I could rotate the fuselage of my ATEC Zephyr – How to paint her belly?
    My spray gun is an IWATA W400 WB with a 17mm connection between the gun and the paint reservoir/pot.
    Problem – Need to keep paint level above spray nozzle when painting up side down.
    Solution realign/locate reservoir
    Need a fitting /adapter that will allow a 45 to 90 degree realignment of reservoir to gun
    Found that you can purchase a 17mm male/female swiveling hydraulic fittings of various angles (you may need a little plumbers tape to fully seal the male side).
    Worked very well – some of the best painting I did on the project.
