Ok that's great info. I barely have any sort of air movement so I guess that is one thing I completely forgot about and need to work on for overspray.

As far as the finish goes, I think one of the issues I'm having is what you described as "dry spots" where the surface does not look uniform in the light in some areas. A lot of the non-uniform look seems to be coming from when I lay a new pattern above or below one that I already shot. For example, I lay a line across then move up and parallel back the opposite way, and at the small point where they are overlapping, it seems to distort and come out rough. Is this a sign of something going wrong? I did the front of the hood where it's only thick enough to lay out one line across it and it seems to have come out fairly good without the affect of another line pattern near it.
