2 part Motorcycle tank. Need technical spraying advice Want DEEP Gloss Without runnin

This will be the forth try at getting this tank painted. I've now worked out all mechanical gun related and paint mix issues. Even ready for the bugs. And so I ask about the actual spraying part.

The tank will be gloss black. Using NAPA paint. Base coat clear coat.

OK: When I paint. If I hold the gun closer the tank gets wetter and a deep shine happens. But I risk runs. How important is it that the base coat is shiny and such?


Now for the clear coat. Last time I got it looking Oh So Clear. But when it dried it had run marks.

Do I need to get close to get the wet look? Looking for some advice. I just re-sanded it down to bare metal and re-primed it. About to re-paint tonight.
