I don't know about regular paints, but I'll toss in some info that
may be of use and interest, including the guy with the airplane.

Their floor coatings have a really good reputation.

And actually, my Stearman IS covered with the Airtech process.  However,
when it was covered in 1999 Airtech had just had a run of bad yellow color
coat that turned darker in splotches, requiring repainting or recover on
lots of planes, so the restorer opted for different finish paint.  No idea
how the Airtech color coats resist gasoline, but whenever I have to recover
anything I'll probably have them make me a special match for my colors and
use it.
