Orange Peel is the bane of painting with urethane based auto paint.

Some tips that might help.

Before you spray, use a test card to see how the paint sprays out. I use
the cheap glossy white card available at the local supermarket and cut it to size.

One thing that will burn you is temperature and the surface temperature
of the metal on the car. If the temperature is cool or cold your going to get
caught up in a trap of using slow reducers to try get the clear to flow out.

its been my experience that temperatures in the 70 - 80 degree window
work best. Easy to obtain if your in a booth, not so easy if in certain parts of
the country.

Keep in mind. Temperature is important. Car manufacturers typically bake on
urethane based coatings. The actual baking process helps the paint flow
