Shine , I think that brings us all the way back to one of my first posts . I'd rather mix it right and spray it like it supposed to be sprayed instead of over reducing . I noticed the other guys I used to associate with had trouble getting their metallics even so they used to over reduce and spray at a distance . I used a Devilbiss siphon gun with a high volume air cap (not legal anymore I gather) and I had a 15" wide pattern at 12" from the spraying surface . You had to be on the ball with that one . Emptied a qt. cup in just a couple minutes . It's what I used to paint my T-bucket by the way . Just don't tell anybody , okay .
