The perfect way to a show car finish. This modern process places the color layer down first in an easy to apply basecoat. Then clearcoat is applied to give a deep shine.
Most antique and muscle cars were painted with a single stage paint from the factory where color & gloss is achieved in one paint. While more affordable and producing a factory-like finish, it's also less forgiving. You will need to have good painting technique to achieve even color and gloss.
