alby-73, whatever.

I think you like arguing for the sake of arguing. Get over it and move on.

Yeah, I was leaning toward Acrylics - I do have a couple of pair of plastic coveralls, disposable gloves, and a couple of new 3M respirators.

Stick to the acrylics, and use a 2 pack hardner with the clear.
So Acrylic clear isn't wise to use ???

I have been told that if you use a hardner with the acrylic clear, it drys a lot faster, and is a lot tougher, so resists scratches, etc. Maybe talk to a good paint shop and confirm this. I havent tried it myself, as I don't have the safety gear for 2 pack, but I know people who have done it, and it came out good.

Yeah thanks will do again,

From what the pros tell me 2k seems to be a lot better in the long run and lasts more so than Acrylic.

I think this all boils down to economics and personal preferences.

Personally, I reckon I'll go 2k as 3 independent pros all agreed Enamel is better than acrylic in the longterm.

Thanks to all who provided input.

Cheers

???
enemal as in 2 pack?
normal enemal is a different beast alltogether
and if your doing it open air i wouldn't touch it as it takes 4-6 hours to become touch dry and the finish is absolute crap
and if you don't know how to spray with it you can end up with a bigger job than before you started
aycrilic is very user friendly for the inexperancied as if you stuff it up you can just let it dry rub it back and start again
but you have to know which paint your applying it on as they do tend to recact with each other
