Welcome to our message board and thank you for your question. For me to give you some proper gun settings, it would be helpful if I knew the following.

Air cap and fluid nozzle combination

Type and brand of material being sprayed

Compressed air supply

Ambient spraying conditions

Cheers,

Thanks for the help after i saw the price on the LVX cap I desided to try to use the LVB, WELL I didn't do so well the base was ok for the plain colors but i had streaks in the metallics and the clear took a lot of cutting and buffing not worth it. Please send me the spraying set up for the LVB MY email is posted on your pm

LLO,
LVB's OM is on its way - The LVB settings and technique may sound a little different, BUT, please follow the instructions very closely and you'll be rewarded with some great refinish work. Let us know how you make out.
Cheers,
