Default Hlvp system vs air compressor for painting golf cart

I'm thinking of buying a Hlvp paint sprayer for spraying our bedroom furniture.

Then I thought I would like to use it to paint a few golf cart bodies a year also.

I have a 30 Gal air compressor I use to build carts like adding lift kits and stuff.

I was wondering would that be sufficient for spraying a golf cart body and furniture?

Or, buy a HLVP like the Fuji 2 stage semi pro for around $439 with the gun.

I been spending hours reading about HLVP turbine vs Air Compressors.

Instead of spending $3k to buy a new bedroom set, we just want to change the color from a dark brown to white.

Then I thought, what a cool idea if I could custom paint a few builds I do a year, usalley around 2 carts

Any help from the experts here or advise is greatly appreciated

I am no expert but I borrowed a turbine system from a friend a few years ago and painted a few items and it worked great. I have always wanted buy one. His was similar to this one.

I've got a Fuji three stage turbine system and it works great. My main love in life is woodworking and I use the HVLP setup for painting furniture and have shot some automotive paint before with great success. Like any paint work, prep, prep, and more prep.

I ended up buying a 30 gallon Husky Air Compressor and a LVLP spray gun instead of the HVLP spray gun. The lvlp gun runs below the CFM rating of the compressor I just bought

If you're going to paint furniture, give General Finishes milk paint a look. I use their stuff when shooting paint on furniture and then follow with their top coat using the chosen finish sheen.

I bought the Fuji Semi Pro 2 HVLP turbine system to try automotive painting, but going to shoot the bedroom furniture first. I noticed allot of reviews said the General Mills milk paint didnt cover until 4-5 coats. Did you use a primer or base coat in white before shooting white milk paint ?
