I think it may be time for a new gun, I've shooting through my old mans Sherwin Williams HVLP sprayer which I'm guessing only shoots at about 13 psi. Gonna try color sanding it tonite, hopefully i'll have pics up tomorrow. Thanks again for all the help!
I'm glad to hear everything worked out well. So you ended up shooting a single stage enamel? Those paints usually like the traditional guns laid on thick. Definitely post up pictures!
