<VV> Paint opinions

Lacquer (or the lacquers I've used) lack ling-term durability.  However,
they are easy to apply, easy to color sand / buff, and easy to spot
repair.  They also have a quick dry time which is important in a garage
shop.  I've painted cars with both lacquer and single stage enamel.  My
best was a single stage enamel that I shot outside on a windless day
right after an overnight rain.  It was almost perfect -- only one small
defect where I had to remove a bug from the wet paint.

The current plan is that I'm going to paint the car, but that plan might
change. I can paint the car either in my garage or similar facility.
Duplicolor has a "new" line of paint called "Paint Shop" that is a
premixed lacquer, (check out their web site:

The MSDS doesn't spell out any restrictions about where it can or can
not be used. In fact it doesn't look that bad, compared to other paints.
