deadbodyman you dont know what pain is until you splash lacquer thinner or paint in your eyes

kenseth17 Your not painting that outside in the sun are you? If you are, then that could be at least part of your problem if you have good gun setup and technique.

With the sun heating up the body panels, paints going to be drying before it even has a chance to hit the truck, and not have time to flow. Which could mean a dry rough finish, and no time to even pearl, or worst (such as solvent pop which would leave a ton of tiny little pinsize craters when the trapped solvent bubble pop.
And thats not exactly a small area to get around to stay wet and have overspray from other panels melt in in the first place. Not to mention any wind blowing up junk and messing with your pattern.

If forced to paint outside, I would at least try to wait till a calm day, and paint real early in the morning. Not really the easiest thing to paint out in the open and turn out a good job.

And even though outside you should have decent ventilation, you still would never catch me spraying without a respirator and fresh cartridges. I hate to think how much I may have damaged my health over the years not always being the smartest, or hanging out in a heavy fog filled garage. . Isos and solvents are nothing to play around with, you should read up on the dangers. Unfortunately they never told us how hazardous the chemicals in paint and primers are when I was learning the trade. That includes mixing, and they also enter you body not only through breathing, but also skin and eyes.
