What paint to use
so my '87 kawi 650sx is ready for paint, spent the last few months preping it and all I need to do now is buy some paint and spray..
but the question is, what paint? its a pretty simple job, just black over the entire ski (then some green decals) but i'm just lost on what brand to use? how many coats? everyone seems to use something different so im sure there will be a few different opinions on what primer, paint and clear coat to use.
Thanks ahead of time, just want to get this project done!

Any good high solids urethane will be fine if its prepped correctly. Imron is the most durable but should be sprayed in a booth with protective equipment.

I've seen that there is marine paint and automotive paint, is there really a difference? would regular automotive paint last?
We also have something like this to paint in
