After you have removed all the paint from the gun and cup flush it thoroughly with warm water - followed with percolation of one or two ounces of a good liquid glass cleaner wipe and blow dry - lube in the proper places and your gun is ready for the next use.

thanks for the tip HUB! anyway i sprayed envirobase (black) today and i sprayed it like i would normally do with solvent all the characteristic of the waterborne is almost the same as solvent except the drying technique. it came out prety good, so im confused about all the "wet bed" and "control coat" stuff. can anyone explain this to me? thanks in advance.

Hi Tony,
All major auto paint companys are modifying they'er Waterborne recommendations for mix ratios, fluid nozzle sizes and spray techniques. We (ASET/Anest Iwata) are working with them all to set the standards that work best with our spray equipment. Please check back with us from time to time to see our latest recommendations.
Cheers,
"HUB" :)

Would you recommend putting a wet bed on metallics for nexa autocolor aquabase ? Or Is it a waste of a step?

May be a wasted step & material. Paint manufactures only call for enough paint to hide - it would also prolong the dry time.
