Okay GF sounds like you've got the set up routine down. The material hose cleaning is just a matter of cleaning the pot of the unused paint and adding clean solvent to flush the hose and gun once that runs clear disconnect the mainline air hose and pull the ring on the relief valve to clear the pot pressure - then pull the gun trigger full back for a minute - that will release all material from the gun head and hose back into the pot. now hang the gun above the pot for storage.
For those hard to reach areas adjust the fan down to a round pattern - this will allow you to cover these areas as far as 48 inches away - take it easy you have reduced the fan pattern from about 12 inches to about 3 or 4 if Your not careful you'll cause some major runs. And remember air comes out of the gun before the paint so if your spraying into radical reverse curves you may need to lower the atomizing air pressure because the air will be bouncing its way back out and pushing some of the paint with it making it difficult to get proper coverage. Good luck, please let me know how you make out.

Success ! hooray, Words like those make this job fun :arrow: However sometime if you would kind of make a mental note or two and let me know how much time you figure the pressure system saved you.
