dont worry about orange peel in base coat the main aim is an even and consistant finish. normally base coat would just be tack ragged between coats and clear coats but i have rubbed the odd bit of dirt out of base coat. but you will need some serious blocking on those runs.

is it solvent or waterbased paint?

Pro spray is some of the best out there for the money but I've never used it.just folow the mixing ratio on the can. Dont worry about how it looks as your spraying ...since theres no metallics it's even easier all you have to worry about is your 50% overlap while spraying dont look at it from the side while your spraying.look straight at it at 90 degrees and your eyes should follow the gun...looking at your overlap ,nothing else.The base flatens out on its own as it dries...
In general,normally I dont ever touch the base when the last coat is done and dont even use a tack rag before I clear because it disturbs the metallics...being it's a solid color you might be able to get away with it but I wouldnt try it.you CAN sand between coats for dirt or trash ,someone else that uses this brand would be better suited to answear that. But tack the car and the paper with a blower before every coat,every coat but the last..

Its a little late now but what you should have used is prosprays SS then wet sand when its dry with 600 then clear SS sprays like dream compared to base.just spray it like you want it to look....
Those finish line guns come with many tips and it gets confusing....use the 1.4 for the base and clear ,the last guy I helped had a brand new one,when I went over I couldnt figure out why he was having trouble until I noticed he had the 1.7 tip ...

Looking good to start..some advice would be to just sand the fisheyes(that came from under the base) half way down. They are "sealed" now and won't reappear if you just sand them level not all the way..

Check this tube to see that you can take more time, relax and dust on the base and kinda even build with the base color. It should not be shiny at all and can even be a little rough...

Not to sand before clear ...

ok watching this video i think you need gun technique practice. i see you going over down and back without ever releasing the trigger. i think you should practice going straight across and off the fender concentrating on your speed,distance and overlap. the way you are doing it some spots get a much heavier application. if you dont release or go off the fender at the end of the stroke for that second when you stop,go down and switch direction you will be overloading that spot.
you should also be doing the leading edge of the fender and the wheel well lip and other hidden spots first.

In this video he is able to reach all the way across the car and get to the other side so it isn't an issue.

start on one side. go to the center. then jump around the other side of the car start in the center where you left off and come to the edge.
