Proper Type of Paint?

Sorry if this has been answered before but I did a search and came up with nothing specific. So the more I read the more confused I get. What type of paint should I get to repaint my 110?

Single Stage Acrylic Enamel
Single Stage Urethane
Acrylic Lacquer
Urethane Basecoat

Thanks again in advance.

Factory paint is single stage. Several have done base plus clear with good results. I think the choice comes down to color. What colour are you thinking about?

Scott - It is originally Trident Green but I really like Bronze Green.

Peter - I am rebuilding the bulkhead so wanted to get that painted before refitting.

I'm about the same stage as you in a rebuild, and plan to use single stage just because it's less steps and should look as good as the factory paint. The higher quality paint job would be base coat/clear coat. I actually used the spray cans from Tower Paint to do the bulkhead since the actual body color areas were small (did bedliner on most of it). Their paint is high quality and the cans have the good spray nozzles on them, so it turned out good.

Thanks. Would have done galvanizing, but believe it or not there is not a galvanizer within 200 miles of me, and I also have reservations about getting the paint to stick. Bedliner was easy and just seemed more durable than paint for the engine bay. I sprayed the whole thing with Rust Bullet before I did anything.

RiftRover,

Are you going to use single stage acrylic enamel or urethane?

I'm planning to use the Enamel because the paint from Tower is Enamel, but I'm no paint expert. If I had to guess the Urethane may be more durable? Maybe someone else can weigh in on the paint types...

I thought that our trucks were originally painted with an isocynate paint. Not true?

So, was there a definitive answer to this question? I'd like to know what my 97 D90 is painted with.

Trucks with metallic colors are usually base/clear. I used single stage acrylic enamel on all my paint work.

If you are painting it yourself the choice of paint should be a factor of your painting experience, equipment, and your painting environment.

Series Land Rovers were lacquer, no idea if that carried over to the coilers.
