can one of you add the info about
Types of paint, compatibility, what goes over what, what CANNOT be used over what?
That type of info
 
Also I know that painters have their preferences and brand loyalty but maybe some advice on different brands?
 
O'Reilly's has NASON and DuPont Chroma?
What is the Summit brand?
How about the Dupli-Color system they have out now?
etc..

^^^ Dupli-color ^^^^
Dupli-color system is a (semi) modern lacquer. It's pre-mixed with thinner, you use it straight out of the can. It's a base/clear system and they have metallic and such for it as well. My thunderbird has white on it, without the clear, and it has lived outdoors for 8-9 years that way. It scratches easier than modern paint, but no worse than old-fashioned lacquers. Maybe not showcar finish, but inexpensive and works well
Summit's paint is made for them, and it's not bad, a good general-purpose paint like the old delstar/delthene paints. (Don't remember who makes it for them.)
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.

New here, so not sure I'm in the right window.
Am repainting the Differential on a 68 Torino, someone told me the original was not Gloss.
I don't want to go with Flat. Would Semi-gloss be correct or Satin finish. Eastwood does not show a
semi-gloss, only a Satin
