Paint, what kind?

so.. ive been looking at paint for automotive uses.. noticed a bunch, that tend to stand out:

'dupli-color' - its super cheap, no mixing required, and ..well, its cheap. and available

'du-pont' - its sorta expensive, like ~5x maybe a little more than dupli color, but its good (i used it once..?)

this is gonna be for a paint job on my neon (yes, the neon..) and i just need one that'll tide me over.. till the next paint job. its a daily beater, and i dont really care so much about it..except that it has all this weird shit all over it & the clear coat is peeling.

anyone ever used any paint? any suggestions?

i DO have a HVLP paint gun..which im going to use. i have SOME experience with painting, namely the 'snap-dry dupont' paint..

and i do plan on clear-coating it, unless someone objects :p

dupont is very good...thats what we use at the body shop..then yes i would also clearcoat it. but clear is very expensive..

And sucks.... Half the cars i see have good paint and shitty clearcoat.
