    That depends on the what the original finish is.  If lacquer, you could use
    lacquer.  If enamel do NOT use lacquer, the solvents in lacquer will lift
    the enamel finish.  If enamel, a sealer/primer then good quality enamel (not
    synthetic crap).

    There are so many new paint formulations out there now, your best bet is to
    go to a professional paint store or auto-body/paint supplier and pay a few
    bucks over Wal-Mart for added value and a paint system that will do the job.

    In the final analysis, you may be time and money ahead by taking it into an
    auto-body shop and having them do it for you.
