Repair help

I need some expert opinions. I need to paint one fender and the windshield frame of my car. I want to do it as cheap as possible due to the fact that later on, when I have more time, I will strip and repaint the entire car. I want to use materials that I can spray in my garage. I don't have a fresh air respirator, but I do have a canister respirator. The car has a BC/CC finish. I was thinking of using a lacquer BC/CC. Cheap, dries fast, and won't kill me. Also, it's available here in AZ. Single stage enamel? I'm worried about it matching the rest of the car. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Curt

I think you are going to have trouble matching the colour, regardless of what you use. I know that clear coated paints fade less, but your new section is being mixed at a different time, so it bound to be out somewhat....just my opinion.
