Acrylic enamel is the paint that was used for years on cars before they came up with base coat/clear coat. The second one bc/cc requires a lot of sanding and polishing where acrylic enamel just goes on and looks great after it dries.
Over the years there has been developed a way where the A/E is sanded and polished, but I have not tried it.

All you need to shoot A/E is primer & lacquer thinner for the primer coat. Then A/E in the color you want, mixed with enamel reducer and be sure to purchase a can of hardner.

I buy all these items from the DuPont Auto Paint store.
