Recoat Time and HVLP Adjustment Help

I need some help on painting before I begin. I am going to strip down to bare metal and use Kustom Shop Wax and Grease remover and then prime with Kustom Shop Epoxy w. Hardener (no reducer). Now my question is how long do I wait to top coat over the epoxy primer with Acrylic Enamel w. hardener. Also how long between coats of acrylic enamel?

I want this done right so any suggestions would be great and does anyone know a good solvent to clean acrylic enamel with?

And finally can you test spray gun adjustments with spraying water through an HVLP gun.

When used as a primer/surfacer, apply a wet coat with 5 minutes
flash off time. Follow with a medium wet coat. Allow 15 minutes
between subsequent coats. Do not apply more than 3 medium coats. When
used as a sealer, apply only 1 wet coat

no on the water. you want to set your gun with the material you are using.

most bases ask for 17 -22 seconds in a number 2 zahn viscosity cup and water is in there at 18 or 19 sec I think so yeah you could have a look at the fan of your spray gun with plain water..
