Oops, this want meant to be part of the thread below: More input on paint...

check with your local NAPA, they now sell a line of paint called "Cross-Fire". The cross fire line is much more reasonable priced and is still very good quality. The big difference in the Cross-Fire line is the color matching. The cross-fire line is not formulated to be an exact match to an OEM color. If you are refinishing an enitre car, this is perfect- good quality, and reasonable prices. All the products, reducer, clear coat, hardner, etc are much less expensive. Go with an acrylic enamel and you will have the high gloss you are looking for without the need to clear coat. If you are painting a car and you have exposed bare metal, be sure to use a good etching primer/filler before you paint. Good luck.

I have used Cross-fire, good paint! I matched it really well with my paint on the racecar.
