23lbs with the trigger pulled,
10 inches from the panel..
start off the panel/helmet
count 1 second per 12 inches of pass.

That art work looks nice by the way

Thanks- That helps me dial it in quite a bit. The last I just show was at 37 psi. I actually got decent results with that. Taking it down a bit should get me even closer to where I need to be.

The clear on the helmet is awesome. I'll let you know when I get to that point. Thanks for the tips

ya, some clears Ive used do not say anything about reducer. You always want to add reducer to clear in my experience. I'm not sure why they don't tell you that, maybe cause they want you to use more material???

Maybe-I am glad to at least be on the right path with the CC tho. I was starting to get discouraged. I really appreciate the help.

In some areas it will put the VOC regulation over the limit so
it not advised "legally"..

Reducer in excess of what the material manufacturer recommends may result in adverse effects such as dieback and solvent popping, at the least there will usually be some loss of gloss. I think it would serve a painter best to learn the gun setup and technique required to spray the material as it was intended to be sprayed, then learn to tweak the mix to achieve a desired result once a baseline has been established.

Manufacturers minimize the solvents in their products for a reason, because they are necessary evils that really do nothing for the product but reduce viscosity for ease of spraying. Ideally, the urethane resin would have a low enough viscosity to be sprayed with no solvent addition at all.

ya, but what about "high solids" clears. There's no way of spraying them without reducer

All I can say is mixing in reducer was the only time I achieved any success spraying this clear. I tried an assortment of PSI (high and low). Different distances to my substrate and other combinations... Without reducer the CC didn't atomize well at all and landed about the size of small pebbles,

Just out of curiosity, what is the size of the fluid nozzle on your gun?
