Why dont you try using a good quality water base and a water base clearcoat i am a tech for a paint company and use these products everyday infact my race car is painted in water from primer to clear its easy to use with no special equipment required and drys with a hairdryer move with the times people ?

The car is open, the keys are under the dog !
Last litre of Glasurit 2k solid colour I bought was £80.00, some years ago now!
This is the thing with 2K, it really flows and takes 20 mins or so to flash off. (great for runs till you get the hang of it).
However, ANY dust is not good for you, so always wear some form of mask when cleaning up dust etc.
Overspray in the air is bad obviously as its not cured.
Waterbased is not an easy option , I remember the painters at a firm I worked for having problems with it [ and these were experienced painters using the best professional gear and booth !]
What I would say is that for home use a 2K high build primer , sprayed over a light coat of etch primer , then followed by cellulose top coats is a good way to go . Get the basics right at the primer stage and the cellulose will go on nicely ,and if you make any errors it is easy to flat back by hand unlike 2k.
