About 2 months ago I primed my car using Kirker Enduro Epoxy Primer on bare metal, the Kirker laid down beautifully, I have absolutely no issues.. Then I went ahead and applied filler as needed, got the body how I wanted it, etc.. Over the past couple of days I hit all the primer with 220 grit and then Red Scotchbrite to scuff it, as I was far outside the window. I was very meticulous about cleaning the car and getting all all the residue off.
Yesterday I went ahead and put another couple coats of Primer on. My local paint store was out of Kirker so I went with U-Tech E250 epoxy primer. I mixed it at the correct 3:1 ratio. I set my compressor PSI to about 95, and then my gun to 30. I am using the Harbor Freight HVLP (purple). With this Primer I have a texture on my car, it looks like I Rhino Lined it or something haha. I am man enough to admit the problem most certainly lies in something I induced. I highly doubt this has anything to do with the Primer choice!
The only thing I can think of is that I used a different gun with the Kirker than the U-Tech. My first HVLP said on it "Max 43 PSI", the one I used yesterday said "50-70 PSI". So I initially had it set at 50 PSI and it seemed to be blasting the panels, so I turned it down to 30, but it didn't make a difference.
This was literally the second time I have painted a car, and it may have been just dumb luck that it worked the first time. So please, you won't insult me, break it down Barney level for me. What am I missing, and what can I do to correct it? Thanks!!!
