First Paint Job: What paint for this color?

I am going to be painting my first car. It is a complete paint job and will be done in one of the newer colors. It is the 0580 code of the Gold Rush Mica from Toyota Scion. I have included a picture of the color on an attachment to this thread.

Not sure what line to use. I have used the PPG line so far with the DP40LF epoxy followed by the Shopline 2K spray filler primer. I have blocked it once and now resprayed and ready for the final sanding before epoxy sealer.

Question is:

What line is best for economy and for this color? I don't mind using SPI clear if it is best with PPG Deltron Paint etc. I just want to know a few options to consider. I have read a lot on here but, boy, as a first timer it gets confusing. I am not worried about actually spraying it, I am worried about picking a wrong combination or spending a lot more money than necessary.

Can you please help?

I want am ready to get started on this as soon as possible.

PM's are welcome. I understand these type's of questions can be controversial.

What no opinions on this? I would really like to hear what combinations work. The difference could be hundreds of dollars...so if anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.

Doesn't matter if your just doing the one car... The reason a lot of folks stick with one paint line or another is it's easier to learn how one act's/sprays and the left overs can be used to tint and make sealers/pre-base surfaces for future projects etc..
There was a time you had to worry weather it was lacquer or enamel you were painting over but not anymore...It may seem pricey today but a repair or a project or 2 down the line and the decision to go with the best from the beginning actually saves /makes dough...


Dbc at 70 degrees with 1870 reducer with your clear of choice would be easiest to nurse along and get a good result for what it sounds like your asking though.
