So ?

SO, you are saying keep the PSI at 30 and turn down the material knob 1/2 turn or so?

I paint w/ it wet about 1 ft behind the gun w/ the clear. Am I putting on too heavy a coat?

Orange peel is OK I guess if I want to sand for 20 hrs to get the shine I want. It is just I have been painting the truck for 2 months and have painted it twice (re dos), So I have the hole technique of spraying down to about 10% towards great. I just would like to paint the Cortona once and just have to sand the one or two runs out and be finished. I just read turn the PSI up to 50 on the last coat. WOW, that is more than I was going to practice w/.

Being retired I have the time and I am very patient and enjoy this very much.
My wife's car got hit in a parking lot and she was like I have another project for you. It is her front fender that needs a lit work and painting. I laughed and called the insurance company. I guess I do not like it that much.
