Painting airplanes

I'm interested in using Nason products over aluminum to paint my airplane. It's almost finished after taking 11 years to build

Airplane painting....

Ive painted well over 150 airplanes,after 11 years building/restoring an airplane,why not use a better paint? ALWAYS have plane stripped to bare metal,REMOVE corrosion with nylon wheel,(if you keep planes surface WET,corrosion will be removed MUCH FASTER,without nylon wheel,leaving black streaks,,(trade secret)(wear bathing suit) REMOVE ,Flaps,Rudders,elevators and Aerilons,remove all inspection plates,i ALWAYS used EPOXY Zinc-Chromate as a primer,spray primer (2 coats)let the plane and parts set for a full day,using a 3M GREY pad,i scuff all parts,then i paint with either ALUMI-GRIP,OR AWL GRIP,or IMRON,(IF using IMRON,keep at LEAST a quart of paint for touch-up.REPLACE ALL screws,nuts and bolts with S/S,REMEMBER,you must use 12 inch numbers after painting...
