Paint container lid for HVLP sprayer

Anyone know of a company making lids that fit 1 quart metal paint containers used in HVLP sprayers? I found a plastic cup with a lid below but I just need the lid. I don't want to keep cleaning the containers out just because I need to wait 1 day between coats. Rather leave the paint in the container without worry of it drying out. Using plastic wrap and a rubber band right now but want a proper lid.

You've got to clean your gun anyway, so why not just put the paint in a quart jar with a lid? You don't want paint sitting in paint equipment overnight. In addition I don't understand how you have a 1 quart container on a HVLP paint set up. High Volume will use up a quart of paint in a few seconds. Are you sure it is HVLP, and not a finish sprayer and compressor?

I have several quart cup HVLP conversion guns. A HVLP isn't high volume like an airless. Basically it puts out a lot of paint relative to the smaller amount of overpsray unlike a conventional cup gun.
Like Larry said, pour your mixed paint into a sealed container and clean the gun!
