Lots of practice. lol

Just try different mixes of paint/air and all that good ish. I'll have to ask my buddy what pressure he runs his guns at as I can't remember. But you need an inline air drier and a regulator so you can set the working pressure (hold the trigger on the gun while you set the pressure)

For best results let off the trigger after every sweep (if you don't you will get thick spots at the ends of each sweep, and it will more than likely run), keep 8-12" of distance from your project, move at a constant speed, overlap ~1/4 of the spray and multiple light coats is better than fewer thick coats.

(I'm not a painter, just stuff I have picked up over the years)

what else do you want to hear? it is going to take some practice and trial and error before you get the hang of it. make sure you stay consistantly 12-16" away from the surface and use the mixing instructions for the paint you are using. you will be golden as long as you take your time

oh yeah and make sure you look at your manuel to figure what pressure you need at the tank if you dont you'll make a mess

just remember it takes a little more finesse with a hvlp gun than one of the older paint guns and as said take your time, that is the biggest thing
