The last car I painted myself was a 1958 Studebaker Hawk. That was in 1969 and I used lacquer. I did the job outside at my brother's place in the country. Lacquer dried fast and had to be rubbed out anyway, so any bugs or dirt particles that fell in didn't matter. You just sanded them out and then rubbed out the paint. The finish product looked good enough to a nineteen year old kid.
