Over spray didnt cause the dry spots, and the orange peel, well wow. Hvlp isn't the best choice for clear, 35 psi obviously wasn't the problem either. Next time if u can use reducer, do so. r u sure it was a 1.4 tip? Also, spraying it heavy is most likely where u went wrong.
Captian OBVIOUS.

I used the same gun spraying SS on my Nova... I got bad orange peel at 35psi (trigger pulled)... I bumped it up the 45 (trigger pulled) and it did alot better. Its not a true HVLP even though its stamped on the handle. More like a conventional gravity gun.

is that a special plastic foil in the booth, that any overspray will not stick to
