alfa sprint 1986

Engine bay repainting

My 1986 Sprint was painted in acrylic so do I need to paint the engine bay the same?

I have heard that 2x paint is better for a higher gloss without any buffing or polishing.

As I cannot use 2x paint by law, has anyone used acrylic and is it that hard to get a good finish?

My buddy George used the new type of paint ( water based ) on his Sprint, engine bay as well.

Its all the same result to me
