Nice spray paint?

Okay guys, I need some help. Me and my friend are talking about spray painting some stuff on my car. My k-member, torque arm, various stuff before I install new ones. I have seen jobs come into the body shop and not believed they are spray paint as long as the proper measures are taken. And I think I am going to paint my tranny as well, but I'm going to do that legitly.

Now, A) do you guys have any examples of good looking spray paint work? (sanded cleaned primered painted and cleared, and looking awesome)
And B) when painting the tranny do I have to do any extra steps to do it right? Do I need special paint, or special primer to help adhere the paint to the housing? Also should I do like 2 clear coats? Or should I do more (because of the exposure to rocks, muck, and road grime) and risk getting a bubble or two?

P.s. I tried to contact the tranny master sniper, but his inbox is full so that's just no F'in bueno.

The suspension parts would be better off powder coated. More durable than paint and looks great! Reason after market companies powder coat their parts. As far as the trans, a good high heat paint would work just fine. Clear coating is JUST an option. Personal preference really. If it were me, I wouldn't worry about the trans. Just clean the underside of your car regularly.

Eh yeah I think some of the smaller parts I would spray paint. I did my ebrake handle and if you hold it up to my fender you can barely tell the difference. And I'm probably gonna take off all the parts that are small and go to a buddys and use his home radiowave part washer. Then start the painting process. And I would love to powder coat them but I dont have the stuff for powder coating and don't want to pay someone. The tranny I would do like any bodyshop does.
Yeah meatwad I'm talking rattle can. And ercmann, other than price you also can't do touch ups to powder coat correct? I may very well leave the tranny alone but I would like it red, so still in the middle lol

I'm sure it would look great if done right. But don't expect it to last! You risking price and looks or longevity and quality.

And what body shop rattle cans valve train parts? You sure your not confusing specific paint in a can type products meant for valve trains and outer parts, over counter bought crap like Duplicolor?

Don't Race Inspired Cosmetic Engineer your car man. I once did on interior parts, looked good, but didn't last for shit, and I sanded and primed the parts. I attached a pic, this lasts about a year or two.

And forgive my steering wheel cover, I was young and didn't know what taste was.

Well I meant how a body shop would paint the tranny. I'll take that to my booth and treat that right, but I was thinking I probably just rattle can the small stuff. And I love that interior. Mines a little diff since its a third gen, but still love it.

Although I would have went with red on the ashtray cover and the e brake too lol. Yeah I have done a few cars, but now that I'm on mine I'm really looking at what I want. And as far as the tranny goes I'm hoping i can paint that like I would a fender or something if I decide to do that.

Nice guys. That's sickk iroc 88.. Who knows I might break down and actually paint everything the right way. I was just thinking the tranny mount I could spray paint and little stuff like that because no one will look at it that close, and it'll still look decent...

So what did you use on the dash? That could be his answer. I used Duplicolor

Ghost I actually liked the ways your interior looked. Now obviously I couldnt see it age and and stuff, but idk. And I use duplicolor's primer for small parts, and krylon paint for the clear and actual color.
Pics of said rearend???
