acrylic is a crappy cheap paint that tends to fade after a few months and unless you cut 'n' polish it every month it will look like the paint is 20 years old
I dont know where you picked that up from, but thats crap. Acrylic is the only option (and a very good one) for the backyard respray. 2 pack is illegal to use without a proper spraying booth, as it is harmful if inhaled. the result of any paint is highly dependant on your preparation. you will do a longer lasting job than the professionals will do if you spend the time in the preparation. ACRYLIC WILL NOT COME OFF THE GUN SHINY! well, hardly ever anyway. it must me rubbed back and polished.

the acrylic will shine up just from the rubbing back. I did some bumpers in acrylic and it looked ok, then when we started going over it with wet and dry it came up very shiny. Didnt bother with the clear coat.
we are currently doing the back of a silver xf in acrylic, its really shiny, and hasnt been rubbed back yet, with only a few coats... needs some more, we do 2 coats, then rub with 1200, all up we have done about 6 coats, gonna do a few more... ourold torana which my uncle painted had something like 20 coats on it
Acrylic does and can come off the gun shiny. It's how you've got the gun set and the amount of thinners that you put through it.
Enamel can as well but only in a baking booth. You should not cut enamel back!

If there's commotion coming from the passenger seat, and nothing but earth going round and round outside the windows,.......then everything is not as it seems!
