Pressure pack and aerosol or the same thing,
so just grab a spray-can of the color you want but make sure its for automotive use, not just normal enamel from the hardware store.

Also make sure you prepare the area you are going to paint properly,
because this will make all the difference in the final product.
And when you do it make sure you do a number of thin coats,
don't be tempted to try to do it all in one go.
I would give it 4-5 coats let it dry for a day, then sand it gently with 1200
wet and dry sandpaper (but make sure you do it wet) and then polish it with a good quality compound to get a good finish.

Also a little tip is to pay extra attention to any corners when your painting, as the paint will be thinnest in this area.

Hope this helps.

make shore you prep it properly before you paint it . if you are painting any plastic parts use a plastic primer .or it will peal off after a while the best way for small parts is get your paint code of the car and get it mixed in 2pac paint in pressure can but before you paint it . wash it with wax and grease remover and let it dry for 1or 2 hours

use a gun, that way you can mix it properly to suit where your painting. Temp plays a decent role in spray 2pk

TAKE YOUR TIME
and follow the instructions carefully and mask off more than you think is neccesary. i did it on my old car but im not sure if ill do it myself on the new one because the finnish was good enough for the old car but i dunno if i trust myself enough.
