    Retarder

    it is retarder because it is way too hot to be called reducer . in the old days we would load up lacquer so hot we would melt stripes and make them sag even under many coats of clear. 1 oz per qrt should give you what you need. especially if you shoot early am .

    i am not a fan of reducing to correct spraying habits. i've said it for years Solvents are not your friend . retarder is a much better way to go. in summer i set up to spray during the cooler morning temps .

    CAN'T STOP ORANGE PEEL

    a wet thin coat will not create peel . 99% of the time peel is caused by hosing the clear on trying to get it slick . stacking the solids instead of laying them out smooth . cutting back 1/2 turn on fluid and upping pressure 5 lbs will surprise you . the iwata fan is designed to shoot 90...
