What size is the tip? For cabs you should be using a small tip like 1.4mm.

I’m an admitted rookie, but I have sprayed the ProClassic oil based successfully but I found the key is to thin it.

I’m now beginning to realize just how thin the paint has to be – 30-40 seconds through a Ford cup. If you’re having to jack up the pressure this could be the reason.

BTW I’ve pretty much gone to water based Pro Classic Alkyd or Target Coatings pigmented wb lacquer. Of the two the TC is much easier to spray.

Of course wb paint has its own issues…...
