I just reread one of your posts. It says 120 min psi at wall. My compressor is off at 135 back on at 90. will the low end at 90 be a problem? It is a 60 gallon tank

Just open the regulator all the way, we can make it work.

I had some ss acrylic enamel to spray this morning. Set up the gun with full open pressure (90-120) at the wall, 20 psi at the inlet, 2.75 turns on the volume control knob and spray width about 6 in. I reduced it 8.1,1 per manufacturers directions and the viscaosity cup said about 20 sec. Things went so much better today. I did end up opening the fluid control about 1/4 turn and turned the inlet air down to about 14psi because it seemed to be shooting dry. The outside air was getting a little warm. I am going to spray a couple panels tonite or early morning with the acrylic urethane ss that gave me problems last time. I will post back

Your inlet pressure should be the "Max inlet pressure" noted on the gun. I don't know what gun you are using but 14lbs is WAY low with anything I have. More pressure doesn't necessarily mean dry spray, more means more material is hitting the panel too. So with more material hitting the panel, more means wetter. But honestly, the maximum inlet pressure on the gun is where you need to be.

Here is a "Basics of Basics" that includes setting up the gun. Painting Basics - Autobodystore

great reading. I sprayed the a and the dash today ith the urethane. came out great. I did have some uncertainty on my settings, I was fortunate that trial and error worked. I am going to spray a few more panels in the morning, i am going to try this method and see if I can get it closer. I will post back tomorrow.......Steve

THanx everybody for your help. I did some more painting on the front quarters, deck lid and roof. I did however have some fisheyes appear in a couple small areas. Obvoiously my mistakeed to be a wipe mark fom the wax and grease remover. I did also get one dry spot behind the sunroof. I was shooting white and kinda lost track of where i was. I ended up at 20 psi, 2 3/4 turns on the volume. Im going to let it dry and then spray the rest of the vehicle and see how it looks. If the rest turns out nice i wll respray the top if I have the material. I feel 1000 percent better than the last mess.

Actually I looked at it a bit closer and there is an area about 3x6 inch that looks like this. I would like to think that I could colors and and buff this. The rest came out so nice I dont want to resparay it. Are these fisheyes? For prepping i wetsand with 400 with a small amount of dawn. I wipe it down with a sterile rag with drinking water and tack rag. I am still just thankful that the gun adjustments are working out

Hard to tell from the pictures but, it looks more like solvent popping to me....is this an area where the paint was put on fairly heavy or an area that you may have tried to bury a few blemishes?

that pic isnt much better. I was using acrylic urethane with medium reducer and air temp 65 or so gave it at least 30 mis between coats. 90 percent went on fine. This area and one other small spot is kind of a buzzkill. Ill try and get a better pic later. Gotta finish the job in the morning and i eould like to avoid any more of this. I dont mind a mistake as long as its a different mistake each time. lol

Still looks like solvent popping to me, if Mike, (deadbodyman) could take a look that would be great, I'd like to hear his opinion.

Here is another pic under a magnifying glass. Still not a great pic. I guess white is hard to photograph and spray

Now it looks and sounds like solvent popping...but...is there body filler underneath the paint in these areas?
