You really need to go to the S-W site (click here) and get the tech sheet for the products you are using. The pressure is probably going to be 20-25 on the color and 25-30 on the clear with a 1.4 tip.

Check out the "Basics of Basics" to atomization and setting up your gun in the FAQ pages on this site.

The compressor will cut on, but you should be Ok with it.

"Use 3/8" hose and 3/8" fittings for best air flow !
