Yeah, I would imagine it's way too humid right now.. especially with all this rain we've been getting.

Are the scratches into the primer or worse?

There are special additives that slow down the drying for high humidity conditions. Check with your local auto body/paint supply shop, tell them you need retarder for whatever you are using, lacquer, enamel or urethane. In high humidity the best to use is lacquer, and lacquer clear because you can wetsand and buff it to a mirror gloss no matter what. If you can, raise the heat level (yeah it will suck) in your shop or paint booth with some heat lamps, it will help dry the air.

This looks good! The spray can seems to do OK for the primer.

Just sand it down and use a good high build primer. let it cure 24 hours wet sand with 600 wet sand paper. and reprime and re wet sand. then clean and dry area clean with wax and grease remover then a final clean(er) and use really low pressure bone dry air to blow as you wipe witha tack rag. Do not use much pressure with the tack rag... It is simple. But I used to paint cars. LoL

So i decided to ditch the Harbor Freight gun after it decided to leak from the needle seal and also the 1.5 setup was just to large for base coat and clear coat.

Now i will be using a 1.3 setup from TCP Global that i have already verified does not leak and seems to be a better built gun plus it came with the wrench to tear the gun down with which the Harbor Freight gun did not.
