|cutthroatkid||Well I think its a few things now...first the generic primer,second my gun,I bumped the psi up to 60&it seemed to like that.Next I went&bought some primer from my local bobber&shot it on the cab of a 56 gmc we have after some lite body work&the paint came out nice&smooth on it.So cheapo primer is my guess|

Don't know the answer. If you are convinced its the paint and not spray technique/ air issues/ gun setup, then you should probably wet sand the car again and use the clear that you said sprays good for you.
The SS will just become your "base".
Experts please chime in.

|tech69||you're gonna end up with peel using the purple gun and at 65. The gun just can't atomize good. If you put in more reducer you risk runs and solvent bubbles. I'd do two wet coats and not worry about getting it to look like glass cause if you do get it to look like glass, as I said, you'll get solvent bubbles cause it doesn't atomize good. Not knocking the gun but if you have a good gun you'll get the glossy glass look but it will be atomized better so it's applied thinner and able to breathe. This is important when painting black.|

I don't think SS vs. BC/CC is your problem. Just spray the last 2 coats of the SS as if you were spraying clear. Lay it on wet and it should look good provided your gun settings, distance, speed etc. are all correct also.
You'll get it.

If you don't have enough light you can't see what is happening when you are spraying. I used to hold a trouble light in one hand and the gun in the other, probably not a good idea spraying something flamable but back then we rode with out helmets, no seat belt in the truck, and drank water from a hose !

Sounds like you got heavy orange peel. I had this happen to me on the Nova I did and it was because of two things... fan was closed down and not enough PSI. It sucks.
Hopefully an expert will add to this discussion.

|cutthroatkid||Its a solid,I'm using the cheapo hf purple gun with 100@the compressor&30@the regulator on the gun.its a solid color Think maybe I should bump the air up.|

It could be a number of things
Too narrow of a fan
Not enough pressure
Not thin enough
Btw if its metallic you can't sand single stage, it'll marr metallic and then your paint job is ruined.
