My first Ford was a 2N that was given to me by my father. He "restored" it about 5 years before he passed away.
Used Rustoleum and a brush.
It looked good at first but faded Very quickly so that by the time I got it it was pink.
I have no problem with brush painting one but I would do it with a better paint and use a hardener.
Mix your paint/hardnener in small batches so you can use it up within the stated "use" time.
