motorcycle; s/s or b/c?

Hi, In about two weeks I am going to paint a motorcycle tank and fenders for a guy I work with. All he wants is gloss black with no flake or pearl or anything out of the ordinary. My only big dilemma is this. I can lay down a s/s black as well as anybody but I think he might be happier with a b/c for the durability but I don't have access to a buffer or polisher and have little experience with either. The reason this is a concern is because this is a kit bike that he has been building for about two years and I want it to look good. If it matters we will most likely be using Nason for this project simply because this is the most readily available paint in this area. I guess mostly I am paranoid about orange peel in the clear. Initially he was talking about using implement paint for some crazy reason but I got him talked out of that. I appreciate any opinions you might have, speedaire
