Alright im not sure what kind of paint/paintjob your looking to get, but heres what you need to do. If you want a metallic flake look, go to autozone and buy these few things.
* 320 gritt sand paper
* Dupli-color sandable primer
* Dupli-color paint called metallic flake (on the can it has some shiny pieces of metal flake...you cant miss it
* Dupli-color clear laquer
Again as far as what you are trying to achieve, im not sure if you would want to go with this setup, but this paint is really high quality. Go with DUPLI-COLOR for some great results.
