you're gonna end up with peel using the purple gun and at 65. The gun just can't atomize good. If you put in more reducer you risk runs and solvent bubbles. I'd do two wet coats and not worry about getting it to look like glass cause if you do get it to look like glass, as I said, you'll get solvent bubbles cause it doesn't atomize good. Not knocking the gun but if you have a good gun you'll get the glossy glass look but it will be atomized better so it's applied thinner and able to breathe. This is important when painting black.
