I just painted the frame for a 54 5 window chevy that im rodding (in my driveway, wife was not to happy) 3 coats of dupont nason epoxy primer 2 coats of zero rust (prefer the por 15) and 3 coats of single stage dupont omni acrylic urethane, I have 2 guns an expensive devbliss and a home depot el cheapo deluxe,
I used the the home depot gun on the whole job as its the frame and it worked almost as good as my devbliss or however you spell it. but I had to set it up right to get the best results,
Ive always painted my own stuff for 2 reasons, Im cheap and more importantly I want to learn and say I did it myself, as mentioned in here earlier its 99.9999999999999% prep work, lousy prep, lousy paint job.......once you price paint you will realize that all the discount places are either buying paint by the tanker truck or using crap paint, my guess would be the latter......good luck
