Training project Priming

First time I used a paint spray gun. Was easier than I thought it would be, however I need two coatings, because it doesn’t cover in one coat. Not sure if I have the settings wrong of my gun or if I need to use less reducer.

I created some test strips from the first training project. The first I will bury in my garden to see the effects of weather and check corrosion. The first part is primed, the second scuffed and the third left untouched alclad.

Also I found that the test piece of Training project 1 could be primed without scuffing. Apparently if you degrease the aluminum, the paint sticks. I’ll see if I can scratch it in comparison with the scuffed area.
