69 widetrack The regulator could be the culprit...it's one of those situations where, the internet being a wonderful source of information but not the do all end all, being there and being able to hear what is happening could have solved a situation much sooner.

I sincerely hope that a $30.00 regulator solves your problems with painting your truck.

Keep us informed.

That sounds encouraging. I have heard of others throwing the regulator away that came on the HF gun. I have my fingers crossed for you.

cutthroatkid Yes indeed it does..def wet

69 widetrack To much air pressure can indirectly cause orange peel or the look of orange peel. When I say the look of orange peel it's because with more pressure you get more over spray, this over spray, because of the increased pressure is curing as it lands on the panel your painting giving you little bumps that you cover with a wet coat of clear...If you've ever felt dried over spray, would you paint over top, no, it's not smooth enough.

Hope this explains your question

cutthroatkid Hey there 69 pm sent..well Im gonna try to reduce the clear a bit more to get out the last of the orange peel so we shall see how that works.Also can too much air cause orange peel?Ive tryd to go from wide open fluid till all the way in..I know the more you go in the smaller the droplets get but it seems like it dosnt wanna spray if it gets to small

69 widetrack Well with 4 paint jobs on the truck I don't think I'd worry about hitting metal. I know your frustrated and I don't blame you one bit, but, there's always a bright side...You found out that you where not the problem...You found out that you don't like single stage...(especially thick single stage)...You got a new paint gun (that's always a good day when you get a new paint gun)...and you found out that you can lay clear down with just the right amount of orange peel to match the 2013 GM's just coming off the assembly line. All in all, not a bad day...and you found a paint booth for $800...it just keeps getting better and better.

Good luck my friend and I sincerely wish you all the luck in the world.

cutthroatkid You ever seen the color of money when vincent is kicking gradys but @the masters@9 ball&he says to grady what he said to him earlier...its like a nightmare isnt it?He then replies yeah *****..well I feel like grady anyways..well I shot the clear over the jams of a parts car that is black&there was minor peel..you couldnt really tell it was there so it was almost like factory peel Id say&I can live with that.To just be done.I also found a guy with a paint botth for 800.00&a satajet blue for a little extra so Im done with single stage Im swearing it off because everytime I use it it ends up a mess.Now I have to sand it down for a 4th time Im not happy..I also tryd reducing the ss till it was like water..same problem.

69 widetrack Reduce whatever product your spraying if your getting orange peel. If the single stage is giving you orange peel, reduce it by 10 to 15%...If the clear is giving you orange peel reduce it by about 10%...If your still getting orange peel, try another 5% for either clear or single stage...reduce it until your not getting orange peel anymore.

I think all the advice 69widetrack has given you is right on. It definitely sounds like the viscosity of your paint is way to thick. You do not mention whether or not you have sufficiently reduced this paint. If it is not properly reduced you can use the best equipment money can buy and it is still not going to flow out. You are going to end up with the orange peel or dry overspray.
