Hey everyone... I searched through and it looked like the last time this was addressed was years ago, so...

Ms. Jenavieve will be getting a new paint job in the next couple of months.  Though I've done some painting before, I am by no means an expert when it comes to the different types of paint.

She's red now (an overspray, close to but not exactly the original color) and I'd like to keep her that way.  My goal through the whole restoration project has been to keep her close to original.  I'm not militant about everything being exactly the same as the day she rolled out of the factory, but when I have the option I want to get close. 

As such: what are your recommendations for paint type that resembles the original factory paint?  No metal flake or anything... just something that looks more or less like the original finish.   I've seen so many different recommendations on other sites that my head is swimming with clearcoat vs enamel vs lacquer vs whatever....
