|rusthater89||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?|

|Handfull54||Just remember that if you are painting in your garage to beware of your hot water heater if its in there. As a retired Fire captain I have seen people blown own to the street when those fumes reach their ignition point. Also be sure you have a big enough air compressor. 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.|

Did a little painting this morning. I probably hold the gun more like 8 or 10 inches away, so I retract my statement. (siphon)

|rusthater89||I must say that I hold the gun pretty close, closer than 6-8 inches. I move quickly and just keep overlapping. Might just be my gun setting but it seems to work for me.|

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

Thanks for the tips everyone. My other inner fender came out great.
Now I gotta clean my eye glasses off, darn over spray got past my safety glasses.

|rusthater89||Thanks everyone, I'm gonna do some more primer spraying tomorrow so I'll get more practice.|

You need enough light to see what's happening. I used to hold a trouble light in one hand. probably not a good idea with all the flamable fumes . but I rode without a helmet, drank water from a hose, we didn't have seat belts, etc.

|rusthater89||Thanks paint dude, So I want it to look wet but not have runs.|

|paint dude||Try and keep your gun 6-8 inches away with a 75% overlap, slow your spray speed down and watch it going on, you can tell if its going on dry or not, you want a nice wet film and the overspray will melt in.|

Yes, it isn't wet enough. The problem, the balance you need to keep to spray it wet enough on something like that without spraying it too wet and getting runs. Overlap is the hardest part. You are spraying all kids of angles and hitting the same spots sometimes over and over, at that point it can get too much applied and run. It is a fine balance to spray something like that all over without doing this.

Are the dry sprays due to me being to far away from the part I am spraying? Is this also my orange peel?
