Dupont 4 to 1

Has anyone else used the new 4 to 1 system from Dupont?
If so how do you like it compared to things like Chromaclear?
I just sprayed a car with the new multi-clear and I am not too happy with it.
I adjusted gun (SataJet 2000) as normal when I sprayed DCU 2002 and ChromaClear.
The first coat went on very dry and did not flow out. I adjusted more pressure and turned out the color adjustment 3/4 turn for the second coat and ended up getting 2 runs in the paint, one on the door and one on the back corner. (was a mini cooper)
Granted the car still came out okay, I was under the impression that this would be similar to ChromaClear but it seemed thinner (more like water) to me.
I actually prefer PPG, I love the clear from them.
Don't do production jobs so I don't mind the dry time compared to others.

Anyone else see a difference or is it that I'm just out of practice?

DCU2002 is PPG clear, I guess I don't understand your question relative to Chromaclear.

Just relating to spraying PPG in the past.
I was basically asking if anyone else has used this new 4 to 1 system for an overall job and how they liked it / how it ended up.
I guess it's a little confusing the way I worded it because it's still ChromaClear, just a new system.
