Paint Code Clarification

Hello -

My '84 Spider's truck-lid tag calls out color 514 Rosso. It does not say 'Doppio Strato' (Two Layers).

This means a single stage, no clear-coat paint, correct? Would it be an acrylic enamel or lacquer?

I'm ill-informed on the subtleties of paint and would like to be certain what the existing paint on my car is.

Thank you!

Thank you, Spiderserie4. That thread does a good job of comparing the various types of paint now available, good information to have.

How confident are you that nitrocellulose lacquer is on my car now? I want to be sure of what's on the car now.
