it sound s to me like your gun needs a good cleaning, with the pattern you are getting you may have to clean out the air nozzle
look at the front end and see if all of your air holes are cleaned out,
that is the first thing top look at if you are getting a "C" patern. as for all that metalic "TECH i can't help you much. i just lay down one very light coast letting it flash. and while waiting i watch the flake and see if it is laying down. if it aint then i add some more reducer. for the next light coat. if the flake lays down , then after the flash I hit it medium wet. and take a coffee break ............... then come back and give it a wet coat,
I"m not familar with youir specific paint, but this method was taught to me by an old fart , who could really NAIL it every time.. and it has worked for me since then.
BUt take a good look at that spray nozzle.. even if ya need a magnifyin' glass , get all them lil' holes spickin span cleaned out.
later in that dark cold garage,
