just shot again! warmed up the paint in luke warm water, still came out funky of the gun. i have my air adjustement screw almost al the way opean, and my spray patteren sucks, i have about 2-3 inches wide at about 8 inches away. its the only way i can get the atomization of the paint any good. 1.4 tip and about 45-50psi! the paint hase very little orange peel this time, but i layed in on thick, since last time i didnt get any drips, no i have some monsters, to sand out!

oh well i guess i will go get the thiner for it, its about a 2hour drive round trip to the store, wish they told me earlier that i might need it!

Sounds like gun is plugged up to me!!!!

2nd choice:
Also are you sure your activator is still good.? Top has not been left off for any length of time? Salt humidity will kill an activator faster than anything.

When you spray this are you getting what looks like a lot of dirt in the job -- like someone stood back and threw a handful of sand over the panel - it would have an even look to it.

the gun was a little dirty, not very bad though. i use it to spray the wet-to-wet right before then do a quick clean and shoot.

as far as the dirt thing, i do get that every now and then. its wiered cause i know thier is no dirt in the air, and then all of a sudden i get spots popping up in my work, like they are cominmg out of the gun. small perfectly round and damn hard when they dry.

the activators lid was so tight that i had to use a pair of pliers to opean it. is this normal? does that mean it is bad. real syrupy and clear, the bottle showed no sighns of corosion, looks to be in pretty good shape, first time i opeaned it was 2 days ago.

thanx again for your help!

Robbie!

i read another post on your air gun / paint set up, email me it to me at rob_from_kona@hotmail.com

The little dirt is probably isocyanate clumping, when you used pliers to get top off it can may have been damaged exposed to air will cause this.

BUT!!!

Even so your gun will spray it fine and won't effect the pattern unless ISO is starting to gel.
I think you have some dry paint in your gun on needle or inside fluid tip or air cap, YOU need to check.

After reading all of these posts, I think Barry has hit it right on the head. I had problems with one of my guns last time I was painting. I thought I had thoroughly cleaned it, but could not get the spray pattern right. I finally took it all apart and cleaned it again. It was definately plugged up. Sprayed like new after I really got it clean.

whea i took it apart and found some gunk just where the needle sits in the tip, i think it was from the wet-to-wet primer sealer i was shooting just before i spray the urethane.

thanx for all the help!
