    I notice when I try to paint a lip (ie a panel the round off to a 90deg bend) that the paint oversprays a little bit over onto the other side and leaves a rough surface that I have to sand down. Is there any technique to get around this?

    You might want to try to reduce your air pressure. Is this with basecoat?

    Yep, thats with the basecoat, I am going to apply the clear coat tomorrow so I was hoping to get around that. Thanks!

    follow the bend with the gun dont do it in two seeperate motions. that is about the only sure fire way to no get a little over spray. but be careful with the clear tho....as i remembered you said youve run the base a copule times and the clear is quite a bit more difficult not to run. just curious i forgot what id du say you bought for clearcoat and how much of it do you have?

    Hmm, under the CC5000 it says High Solids Urethane Clearcoat. On the side it says to mix 8:4:1. Is that kinda what you were looking for?
