Join the club, that is a classic maybe only slightly better of why I HATE body work.....

chemistry and me are mortal enemies never got on with that crap and never will, I"m lucky to get streak/run free from a square foot of paint bomb....

looks like that gun is literally spitting the paint on.

Something is very wrong.

Clean it up real good and do some practice stuff before you continue.

Kevin,

All I can say is Wow! Could you have water in the air? Something is bad wrong, but you already know that! Maybe John will chime in with some words of wisdom.

Good Luck!

OK Kevin... don't panic...

Someone here on this board has the answer... meanwhile... be patient and wait for the answer...

I don't think it's a surface prep issue. Is it possible your nozzle is jacked up?

That's ugly. I don't believe it is possible to mess up just with wrong pressure settings.... must be something wrong with the gun. Last time you used this gun you shot clear ???

Try a different gun first. If that turns out ok then you know it's the gun.

You said you shot two coats ?? How long did you wait between these two coats ? Could the second coat have lifted the first coat ?

It's difficult to tell from photos. Spray some paint on the old hood, use both guns and see how that turns out.
