Really it's getting too much material on too dry.
For instance, if you aren't thinning your paint, you'd be more likely to see orange peel. It "feels like" you are getting enough paint on and reality you are, but it needs to be thinned so that it can level and gloss. By the time you make it look slick unthinned, there is too much paint hanging on the panel and it will sag.
It could also mean that the temperature is way too high. Unlikely that you'd get peel in paint this way, assuming that you are using something in the dealer paint types of paints ("implement" enamel flashes off fairly slow). However it could be possible for primers to dry this fast and if your primer is rough, the paint will be too.
Don't be afraid to thin your paint. About 75* is perfect temp. Does that help? Knowing how you are mixing, what you are spraying with, and your environment would be very useful here.
