    Is it ok to paint (basecoat/clearcoat) in lower temps, I'm thinking in the 50's. Would it just take longer to dry? If I can't spray the top coats would the primer be ok to shoot?

    primer shouldnt be an issue and u can spray base/clear that cold but im afraid you will not havegood results. uif you do decide to do it make ysure you have the right reducer for the temp it is. its best to spray around 75 degrees to get the piant to flow out well

    Do you think it would be better to add alot of reducer to the primer to make it shoot thin? 1:4, 1:2 ratio etc?
