Best painting DVD and/or book
 
I don't have a hotrod but figured that Hotrod people would have about the best info on painting as possible.

Have some motorcycles that I need to paint. I know body work basics and have painted some MC parts (and recently a tank) with spray bombs. The last tank I painted ('72' Ducati 750 GT, fiberglass aftermarket tank) came out great. Primer, color & clear were all spray bomb, wet sanded and hand polished to a wonderful finish but.... the stuff can not handle gasoline ! Not a good thing for a MC tank.

Anyway, I am determined to learn how to paint this year. I just purchased a DeVilbiss SRiW HVLP Spot Repair Spray Gun that was specifically recommended for MC work. Have a sweet compressor on the way and thought I would ask knowlegable folks on the Net for recommendations on painting vids and books.

Did a good amount of searching on the Net in general and found many vids (fewer books). Many seem aimed at mural/airbrush paint jobs but I am not really interested in that right now. I just want to learn the basics and learn them the proper way and go from there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. BTW, I did do a search on this forum for "painting DVD" and really didn't come up with any threads.
