I'm not a pro painter by any stretch of the imagination, but that has got to be too close for a conventional siphon gun. Mine sprays good at a distance of about 12 inches and pressure around 45-50 psi with trigger pulled. Huge fan out too, probably 12 inches easy...not that you need that to paint inner fenders.

I think 6 to 8 on a siphon with that much pressure would guarantee runs
