Agreeeing with below statements.

I would AT MOST just base coat/clearcoat the sheet metal only. Single stage on the engine/cast drivetrain components.

IMHO,there are just TOO many,small moving components to NOT have to touch them up at some interval. Single stage is just easier to re do.

I can send you photos of mine with the cast components done in single stage and the sheet metal done in base/clear,if you like?

Well,DONT "throw rocks"at me,but here is my Ford 600.It has ONLY the sheet metal base/clear coated. ALL of the cast is a GOOD quality single stage automotive grade paint.

I am glad i did it this way because I COULD NOT tell you how many times I hd to touch up a bolt head,cover,nut,brake pedal,ECT. Single stage is easier to do that to.And it looks nice on a cast surface.
