I paint a lot , many parts , so I keep it around but a Qt. of clear and Pt. of hardener will run you maybe 50 bucks and youll be surprised how often youll use it ! Wheels , hood bottom sides , engine compartments and the list goes on and on . If you dont have a compressor , you probably dont do paint at all anyway . Wear a respirator !
You got it! Next best thing to powder coating. I even paint some of my my wood carvings w/ clear urethane when I want a slick porcelain look.
