You shouldn't need the 1.7 tip IMO. Are you spraying the MC260 clear? If so You can add some reducer to the clear for better sprayability. 2-1-.5 mix ratio works OK. Use the same reducer as your basecoat. Also you may want to adjust your trigger travel down so less material comes out for better atomization- the gun may be putting out more product than it can atomize. Or buy a better gun. I spray all atomotive colors and clears with a 1.3 and a 1.4 tip without problem. Bob
