Hot Hues help!! Paint problems.

My 40 Chev coupe is painted with Hot Hues cosmic dust. I have made repairs before and not had a problem blending, but now I can't seem to get the metallic to stand out like before. In the sun the original paint just pops with metal. The new is like regular metallic. I'm not a painter so I'm not sure if my paint is wrong or am I spraying to close, to far. Mixed to thin, to thick. It is a new quart but Ive bought it before and it matched perfect. Any ideas. All help would be appreciated.

You could try a faster reducer.its colger out now so what you used in the warmer weather will dry slower allowing the metallics to lay down if your not very carefull....holding the gun farther away is another thing you can do of *** a couple coats on before you clear...

Thanks for the info. I started thinking temperature might have something to do with it. I also remembered I let the car sit a day before clearing it the first time. I will wait for warmer weather and try again.

I've always used a 1.4 for my base AND clear but I recently got a deal on a Sata with a 1.3 tip and I couldnt believe the difference in the amount of base it saved me ,I was wasting a lot of base it also works great for lower end SS paints like Nason...I still use the 1.4 but only for my clears...

My NR95 has a 1.3 tip and is my base gun. I tried using my 3000RP 1.4 tip with base and it made a monster cloud. I also have a SATAJET RP I use for clear along with the 3000RP depending on my mood. The two of them make the clear lay like glass...even cheap clear if I don't have my SPI ordered in time.
