Single stage paint

I have NAPA Crossfire Acylic Enamel paint, the color is Ford off white(Wimbolton white) I bought it single stage as I felt White was only so glossy. With hardener the paint can be color sanded and buffed out.

I guess what I'm asking is this enough for a show quality shine, or do I need the clear the car is a 1961 Ford Falcon Pro Street/Pro Cruise and the under side will also be white. Inside is viper red and the same white.
I have a gallon & 1/2 of color is this enough?

Iam sand blasting and priming with NAPA etching primer, do I need to lay on a couple coats of primer/surfacer, then the the primer/sealer then the color?

I used to paint years ago, this is the first paint job in almost 30 years.

Thanks for any guidance.

1. Yes it will shine like you want it to.

2. Should not take more then 3 quarts to do entire car with 3 coats.

3. The steps you have layed out are correct as well


Sounds like you have it well under control! Good luck!

The only thing I would add is that if you are going to paint the interior, inner doors, under hood, it will take more than 3 quarts. But, 1.5 gallons will certainly be more than enough.

Thank You! Yes, the WHOLE car will be painted, I'll have it on the rotisserie. That way everything will be easy enough to get to. except the inside. That I'll do with a detail gun and airbrush, I've spent a lot of time and money I want the rest to look good too. I picked single stage because the color is White I want the details to blow the socks off the viewer!
Thanks
