OH ok, well there should be a piece of metal at the bottom of the peizo which you tape/solder wire too, and there should also be either a wire, or a metal tab on the side somewhere you tape/solder another wire to

there are two types, a bad one is black and has a big metal cylinder on the bottom that solder doesnt stick to, a white one will have 2 small electrobs that are easily solderable(is that a word?). use the white one.

thats 3 posts of the exact same thing
a big one wouldnt hurt, a small on wouldnt hurt too, just dont choke the flow and keep a good c:b ratio. i think the only advantage of a big chamber is that u can fit a fan in it, but a 2" chamber ignites just fine without one.

you put the q tip in first to stop the fuel (you spray in from the bottle cap) from escaping out the barrel, the ignitor is wired to 2 screws on the gun so the electricity will make a spark

because there is too much fuel in it, i wouldnt use spray paint, it'll leave a residue, and if its an oil based paint it might just burn. try using a spritzer bottle of cologne, a small spritz is the perfect amount
