Thanks for the replies. I was painting at about 8-10 inches and still getting the "sandpaper" texture. I guess I'll wait for a week or 2 for the weather to warm up before trying again while adding the 1 part reducer (I already have the fast reducer, rated 60-70 degrees). I wet sanded out some of the primer today and had a hell of a time getting it smooth, it was "micro-pitted" all over the place after sanding.

I hope outlaw912 can explain the pressure issue further. I have a regulator right at the intake to the gun. The standing pressure was about 25 psi which translated into about 10 psi (per paint can instructions) when the trigger was pulled.

Thanks again for the help. any further tips would be appreciated.
