Default Cheap Bastard vehicle painting?

What's decent and cheap paint to use with a HVLP gun? I'm looking to paint my D1 on the cheap with good results. Doesn't have to be show quality but shouldn't look like crap either.

You can buy Dupli-Color in Qts. and Gallons from AtoZone, O'Rielly's, Advanced Auto Parts not as expensive as PPG and DuPont products and are made for the home painter. Inquire and they can set you up to what you need and want. Colors are up to you.

It's not really the paint ............... if you buy expensive paint , and the body shop does not have a good experienced painter...you are still screwed !!!!

focus on finding a good / reasonable body shop first....:
