General Lee Paint job for 100 dollar 83 Subaru I bought

I have access to a paint booth.
My plan in general is to :
Pressure wash
Buff with compound
What I am unsure about is two things. In what order, and how should I mask off for the flag, General Lee, and 01? The second thing is what kind of paint should I use?
Being that it is a 100 dollar car, the worst car I've ever owned or ridden in, I wanted to spend about a hundred bucks on painting it. However it seems that oil based enamel (rustoleum), while meeting the cheap requirement does not dry in a day. The DuPont polyurethane with accelerator and hardener we use at my work for repainting semi trucks and trailers drys to the touch in about an hour. However, I don't want to spend a couple hundred bucks on painting a car that not only do I want to jump to death next year is also rusted through in several areas. So what should I paint my 83 Subaru with?
