Clean gun with laquer thinner. You will need about 45 lbs. of air pressure for spraying paints. Look where the needle goes into the back of the front "head" of the spray gun. One drop of 30 W. and some trigger pulling will probably cure the spitting. Do this wwithout the air hose being connected. The paint suppliers do sell a product that is used for final cleaning of the surface to be painted, although i have been out of the autto body trade for 25 years, and a lot has changed. When i do any painting at home, (spray) i do use Mineral Spirits, also known as "paint thinner", but not to be used with or in auto/ tractor type paints. Most paint mfgrs will sell some type of product that will be compatible with their paint product, for a final "wash" of the surface, before applying any type of finish. That said, i would suggest one of those little round, white ball air filter, installed right where the air hose connects to the air inlet of the paint gun. As for me--what would i do? I'd go buy a pile of those little sponge type of paint brushes, and go at it. They are all i use, since i became highly allergic to paints using the modern materials, and it is also one of the reasons i retired.Ten minutes in an auto body shop, and i am wheezing like a tea-kettle!
