Changing from HP to HVLP or RP and LV is one of the hardest things to do, a lot of little stupid changes too make the paint lay perfect that did not matter with the HP type guns. Nine out of ten times when a guy like you calls with the same problem, just upping the pressure at that wall corrects everything, where with the old guns, it did not matter one bit what that pressure was.

Once you get it down, you will never go back and you are going from a 25% to a 65-75 efficiency rating, so you will use less material.
