I'm going with Cellulose. Just a base metallic which I will initially scotch to see what it looks like as a Satin finish, but more than likely machine back to a high shine afterwards. I have scotched the car already, and it looked really nice with the semi-satin finish, though I know that it might not be as acceptable as standard. The satin really made the chrome 'pop'.

Now done. I initially painted the car in Thistle, but the weather conspired against me and it came out really bad. So I lost the plot somewhat and painted it all in black thinking I would leave it as a protective winter coat. Then I got impatient, sanded the whole car down again and re-painted it in a mix of the black, thistle metallic and a solid Emerald. I did the lower panels in a slightly lighter shade.
