Not sure that's possible, but I've had very good success with Montana (Big Sky) system 22 acrylic urethane.

I have a local dealer, but here's a link to give you an overview of Montana products. I've used their epoxy primer and some base/clears as well. never had a problem with any of them.

I use Wanda and love the paint and primer. Easy to use and lays down like glass and holds a very impressive shine - even the single stage paint is very hard to tell apart.

Look up Wanda (simple google). It's been around since the early ages and made by Akzo Nobel. I rank it right up there with the European paints (Glasurit, Standox, ICI (now Nexa)) but without the high pricing. Great color matching and they use the same hardeners and reducers for all the products, from primer through clearcoat. I was very skeptical, but once I tried it, I will not spray anything else - and I work on some very high end show cars.

Nason? like I said I haven't been in to painting in like 15+ years. All these suggestions are very much appreciated. I am looking in to every option. This is what Im up against, I bout the truck from an older lady who's husband died of cancer. under the impression that I would put it back to OE condition.

wow! tried looking up Wanda paints and the closest one is like 150 miles from me and when I tried to googol directions it will not give them. so what I would spend on gas and time. don't think Wanda is an option.
