I've always liked and used the ready to spray HOK and Kustom Kolors paints from tcp global. Great color assortment. Goes on smooth and brilliant. Some though do prefer water based paints.

Stew I am not shure where you live but the best thing to do is look around locally and find automotive paint and body shop supply stores and call them up I know there are a few in my area that have painting classes and they will give you all the info of anything you want to know! Also the devilbiss dagr ab you have is awesome those things when you learn them can spray hair fine lines to 1 inch lines very nice score!
