Orange peel in the clear

I just shot a test panel with Omni MBC and Omni clear. The base went on great but the clear ornage peeled terrible. I am using a craftsman HVLP with 40 psi at the gun (max 43) and 1.5mm tip. The clear requires no reducer and a 2:1 mix with hardener. This clear is quite thick. I have a 1.7mm tip for this gun. Should I have used the larger tip?
