recommend hvlp gun for shooting ceiling of truck cab?

can anyone recommend a good gun to shoot ceiling of pickup cab?
I used my cheap Habor Freight gun to prime the ceiling area, but think it would be difficult to accurately shoot B/C on the ceiling area and get a good finish.
Any ideas?

A pressure pot spray gun would be what I would use

I use a Devilbiss Finishline 4. There are better guns, but they're rather spendy.

Owning a Chevelle project is like having a giant-size piggy bank that you keep pouring money into....but you can't get it back out.

I also have a Devilbiss finishline 4, decent for the money.

I've painted a couple cars with an Astro. Not bad for the price.

The 3M system will serve you well for a lot of uses.
https://www.rshughes.com/p/3M-Accuspray-HGP-Spray-Gun-Kit-16587/051131_16587/?utm_source=rshgs&utm_campaign=051131-16587&s_kwcid=AL!4414!3!{creative}!e!{placement}!o !4579946967122547!{&ef_id=XS0iEwAABfPE3RdU:2019071 6010211:s

that link was just from a Google search, I don't buy from them.

I plug the pressure port when not needed. the disposable cups allow inverted spraying and make clean up easy.
There are 5 tips sizes so you can spray almost any liquid. I've used it with the pressure cup for bedliner, undercoating and contact adhesive. the same cups are used for the pressure cup so it is far easier than a regular pressure pot to clean.
It's not what you want for exterior use on metallic, micas, pearls, a plastic tip will not be as precision as the high end guns metal parts but it is great for insides, edges and a lot of odd jobs.
