primer surfacer problem

sprayed a 2k primer surfacer on my car today and it seems very rough.I used transstar quik prime mixed 4-1 shot through a 1.8 tip at abot 15 psi at the cap.It seems to be orange peely(if thats even a word).It sands easy but i cant help but cut through to the filler with 400 dry.Ill sand the car but i dont want this to happen again.
The can says it ca be reduced 4.1.1. Is this my problem?should i reduce my final coat?.I really dont want to have to sand so much again.Sould i just spot the areas where i cut through then spray the sealr.The 2k got rid of all the scratches and once sanded it provides a very smooth even finish.Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

Need to make sure you use the correct temperature reducer for the weather. And you can add a little extra if needed, just remember it will stay wet longer.

===========================================
Something smells funny here with a 1.8 cap.
First pull off your "air fluid tip" Its under air cap and the fluid needle goes into it. (use proper fitting wench not C-locks)
look inside make sure no dried paint in corner of tip.
2nd 15lbs at gun does not equal 15lbs at tip more like 2-4 lbs depending on gun. So to start try 30-40- lbs going into gun and go from there. MIX 4:1:1
