I think you should learn your gun settings (spray patterns) and practice how to build an even film using proper paintin techniques ,, Its a much better way to achieve consistent results and have accurate overlaps and film builds .. you will also have more control and be able to take the paint to its limits without mottling/striping or patchiness..

** I have done this before ..... Sometimes it seems like you need to do it in order to get some coverage... x-specially with "skinny" base coats ......Main thing is your fan width , air cap pressure , material output , overlap , & air cap distance ( from panel to gun ).... It seems as tho the HVLP need to be closer to the panel as compared to conventional guns .. but thats all in your style of painting -- you need to find that first .... Im still looking I can admit ........But i have got a fews years to go as well......
