enamels with hardener or automotive acrylic lacquer. I use an air brush and have some basic paints and a few toners to get the colors I need. Sometimes I order automotive acrylic lacquer from Model Car World. You can get most American car colors from them. They use the Ditzler/PPG color chips to mix their paint. Yes this is more expensive but worth it for me as the last thing I want is to take a chance on paint job after I have invested countless hours on one of my woodie conversions.
