Paint has very little to do with the end result of the paint job. It's prep work and the painter. You can go buy a $1,000 gallon of clear and it can look worse than a $100 gallon of clear if not done right.
If you want tough as nails paint, use fleet or aviation paint, I recommend DuPont imron fleet paint.

You can get it in either single stage or clear coat. Those are both clearcoats. It goes on easy. One wet cross coat of base, ten minute flash then one wet cross coat clear and ur done. Make sure u use an accelerator tho!!! Either 8989 or 389 depending on temps, ur paint store can set you up with all you need.

For a Factory finish its DuPont or PPG,,,I personally prefer DuPont. For a Custom color i always run House of Kolor from sealer to base and clear they are the best, not cheap.Take your time and dont rush your flash times...Good luck

Where can I find DuPont paint, Idk if there are any dealers around here in my small town...

And thanks I have been taking my time on the prep, actually blocking all the primer by hand, cant stand wavy paint
