Also after so much consideration I finally picked a spray gun. It is a devilbiss plus and I love it! It shoots so nice with minimal orange peel. I also purchased a used iwata lph400 for clear coat, I just need a fluid tip for it.
I had the engine bay sand blasted because there was so much rust and garbage in there. I then quickly shot a coat of epoxy primer with a hf gun.

I proceeded to mix and shoot my first coat of base. This was when I quickly noticed how bad I suck at body work. The color showed every defect. Reason why is because I shaved all the holes in the engine bay. oh well at least im getting some experience. next time will surely be better.
For the paint I used dupont chromabase and nason 497 clear. Ii was very pleased on how nice/evenly the metallics sprayed with the plus gun.

After that I didn't get any shots of the other coats of clear but I was happy with how it turned out. Other that the **** body work.
Final result of the color.
