    good and cheap shouldn't be used in the same sentence when talking about paint. what's your price range. no matter what paint you buy... if who ever paints it doesn't know how to lay paint it won't look all that hot anyhow.....

    clear with all the hardeners is about 50 a pint and that's PPG but you will need a gallon to do the whole car so x4 give or take 20-30 bux

    as for the base each color has a different price reds almost always cost more than anything
    and how many stage paint job is it going to be

    need some more info man

    go to your local shop and see what they have 170$ you could spend that on clear coat and hardener do you have to buy everything(primer-reducer-thinner-prepsolve-base coat- clear-hardener) if you do then no 170 is NOT going to do it not even close for decent paint 400-500

    i mean you could use OMNI which isn't all that bad and fairly priced go to the shop and ask for prices on OMNI in all stages primer-base-clear
