Im using a Ingersoll Rand HVLP driven off my compressor. I’ve never had great luck at running any HVLP gun at low pressure. Always seems to get a smooth finish that I need to get the pressure up toward 30 or 40 PSI which always seems too high to me but I’ve played around with it so much and that’s the only thing that gave me what I wanted.

I think I must have had some surface issues with the first spray. I sanded tonight and laid down another coat but did so with many lighter coats. Looks OK now – I guess I’ll see in the AM!
