Without Knowing any more than I do about the car at the moment, I will say this....the preparation is a lot more important than which brand of paint you choose. As far as which brand you will get a different answer from just about everyone, depending on their preference. It will not matter if you use the cheapest paint you can buy or the highest you can buy, if it bubbles, rusts out, or the primer falls off in 2 months because the job was not started right. Now mind you I am not saying you have to strip or blast the car to bare metal and start over, but the best paint in the world will not fix dents, rust, or any other bad repair. I do recommend using SPI products as I have recently started using them and compared to even the "best" stuff on the market from the major paint manufacturers they are far superior in product, use, and definitely customer service. I have rambled on a bit but my point is you have to start right to finish right. Best of luck to you
