Lightbulb Repainting & "Sumo to Sumo victa" conversion. Advice needed.

Guys, I'm just working on my 1997 sumo (NA). Its the 2nd time repainting the car. Its been looking "plain white" all these 8 years and always looked like a cab or taxi or call centre vandi till now, and now i'm planning to give it a new lease of life with an improved paint job and complete Sumo victa body kit.

I've decided to paint the car to a silver from dupont. I'd like suggestions about the silver shade from u guys.

Also, Chennai's moist air eats up cars really FAST. We never sell off our cars and our sumo is a very sentimental possession. I want this paint job to last atleast 5 years in this very humid chennai weather.

What is this "paint protective coating" that i can use to make it stay that way?

The chassis and the underbody has been given a very strong paint to protect from corrosion.

I would keep updating on the progress of the project often.

So, paint gurus pleeeeez HELP!
