    20-25 Is fine, I usually turn it up a little more for the clearcoat to atomize it better.

    thank god you told him the right answer befor some noob told him 50psi or somthing dumb. I spray high build at around 13-15 psi but i am runnning a 1/2 airline on a big tank so i flow more air at a lower psi.

    it depends on what you feel comfortable at usually 15-25 psi work fine for anything you are spraying. :D
