spraying clear want help at all you can scuff your base down and apply another coat when spraying metallic it works best for me if i hold the gun back about 2 foot and use a Little More air pressure and fog it on it will help the metallics flow

Nope..get out of the wind for one and use more overlap when you shoot the base..You will need to buy more base and reshoot..Common problem..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
