Ready to give up on dimensions paint

I've painted cars for about 17 years and until the last year and a half i've had no trouble.Now every time i paint it looks good for about 10 to 15 miniutes and then it starts to get tiny little bumps all over it. All the paint comes from the same supplier as before. I'm using dimensions primer and paint, i have tried every primer they have for that paint line and i get the same problem with the acrylic 3.5,5.0, and base coat clear. The clear is dc 5000. I wash with dish washing liquid and a industrial strenght purple cleaner, prime, water sand and wash again. Then the next day i wipe with solvent cleaner ,tack and paint.I've bought new hoses, compressor and i have a toilet paper type filter, a micron filter, and a filter at the gun.I'm using a devillibiss gti milliniem gun and have been for about 3 years. I've used these same steps for years and had no trouble but now this demon just won't go away. I know alot of people say they use this paint with no problems but i'm begenning to think this stuff is crap.I'm just tired of wasting my time and money, i've put in too many hours to be turning out crap and it is kicking my butt, any help would be appreciative cause aparently i don't know as much as i thought?

Have you been having high humidity in your area?? there is something called ISO clumping which is prevalent in high humidity areas..caused by moisture in the air combining with ISO's in the paint..Makes bumps in the paint like you are describing..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
