help with my air set up.

So i am having trouble with my air set up. First here are the specs. I have a 2.5 horse power 25 gallon compressor. I dont spray cars just small parts. So my issue is the reading i am getting on my gauges. Here is my compressor.

if you are only spraying small parts youll be fine. I use a flg-3 for basecoats and have sprayed clear with them. I typically run it at 23psi for bases and 28 for clears.

Restrictions upstream of gauge (regulator, small line, long line, water, debris, etc.) or compressor can't keep up.

Set regulator when air is flowing not when air is dead headed.

I have a 25 ft 3/8 hose with high flow fittings. So this means I won't be a le to use my sata nr2000 to spray a fender or even a door?
