talked to our basf tech line, they are thinking that the limco hardener is reacting with the iron guard paint when it is atomizing in the gun, causing it to gel up as its applied. it is always best to stay in manufactures paint lines to avoid problems like this. crossing paint lines and different mfr products can cause nothing but problems. at this point, i would strip all the paint off and re-shoot. also, alter your prep proceedure. bodywork, prime and block, wet sand with 400 using warm water and car wash soap ( it rinses clear with no residue) wash again with warm water and car wash soap, immediately blow gun dry. then use a wax and grease remover like prep sol, finyl wash ect, tack rag it, then shoot it. depending on the primer you used, the lacquer thinner could also be causing problems with the primer.

I'm sorry for the confusion, but I never used lacquer thinner on any of the wet sanded and primed peices. I'll wet sand using clean water from the outside spigot, then rinse with clean water from the spigot, then wash with car wash soap and clean water from the spigot then allow to air dry in the sun and blow dry with compressed air.
It seems odd to me that I've never had that problem when using the cheaper Tisco and Valspar Paint from TSC (Case Ironguard is also Valspar). Did you notice the breather top I painted that turned out nice? I feel like it has to do with the gun adjustment and air pressure setting. Not saying that it isn't what you have stated, but I feel like it isn't the only thing making it happen.
