I run a body shop in Flower Mound, TX. First off, if you have never painted something before, I would advise that you not do it yourself. It is not as easy as it looks. You have to know how to mix your paint and set-up your gun based upon the color, air pressure, temperature, and humidity. Then you have to know how to properly paint metallics or flat colors and what the proper flash times are.
I always recommend using Du-pont products. If you are looking to buy a Dupont product that is less expensive, than I would recommend using their Nason brand. The finish on it just won't hold up as long as a true Dupont product. It fades after about 3 years.
