Question Firebird GTX Optimized Pretreat Staining/Bleaching Issues

I have a client who ordered Gildan 5000 Gravel (Light solid grey) tees with DTG prints and had great results. I saw the shirts out of the box and saw no signs of pretreat on the shirts but could tell they were DTG printed. Customer ends up needing a 4XL shirt and comes to me since AI have done all other jobs for them. I applied a light coating using a Shulze at 110% speed which would equate to about 15 grams, place the shirt on the Firefly dryer at 290 degrees for 1:40 and result was horrible. Looks like it bleached it out. Anyone have suggestions for these colors that seem to always have issues?
