How do I prevent dry spray and orange peel?

I am using this Harbor Freight, siphon feed, conventional spray gun. I am using Summit Racing epoxy primer. Temps around here are a bit humid, about 70 degrees. I have the gun set to 40 PSI

I set the gun up and spray two relatively thin wet coats and follow up with 2 more wet coats after the flash time.

I seem to have spots that have dry spray and others have some orange peel but it is random.

I sprayed an inner fender and some bumper to frame mount pieces. these had this problem.

I sprayed a fender and trunk, it looked perfect.

what should I be doing?
