I bought 2 little ones and my paint would be dry in some spots and Ok in others. If your compressor is running all the time it's not keeping up. I bought a 80 gallon 7 hp compressor nd all the problems went away. Just my experience.
I do my primer in my driveway. I will do the final paint in my garage with the floors hosed down, since I'll have more room in my small cramped garage with my car back together. This car is not a restoration, more of a hot rod so I am not concerned with getting paint on every nook and cranny. My compressor keeps up fine, in fact barely turns on when I spray. Thanks for your concern though, that is pretty dumb though to paint near a flame.

Just curious, I have limited space and only one work stand so when primed parts flash I try to carefully move them to a spot to dry while I prep the next piece. The primed parts are still soft and despite tryna be careful sometimes I end up nicking it and a small spot gets exposed. Do you guys just touch up with some rattle can primer or do you guys try to mix up some more epoxy for the small touch up?
