Painting a truck - Pretty handy guy, but need a jumpstart

I'm restoring a 1974 Ford F100. I've rebuilt the motor, replaced the transmission and re-done the entire electrical system. I've rebuilt the front and rear suspension and welded in new floor panels, door jams and drawn and priced the additional cost to finish the wood flatbed.

I've finally come to a halt with Paint. It seems that the information needed to do all of the things above was pretty out in the open. Paint, on the other hand, seems to be a closely guarded secret. I'm looking to find out what type of paint I should use and the process for putting it on. I have an HVLP Spray gun and compressor and want to do it.

As I said, i'm pretty handy and have the will to do just about anything. Any help is massively appreciated!
