Are you talking about the old style baked enamels? The catalyzed paints are definitely better. I've heard that baking the newer paints makes them more brittle, but I've also heard it doesn't. No recent experience, trying to figure out how to paint without re-creating Bhopal on a neighborhood scale. The most resilient paint job I ever did was catalyzed urethane clear over lacquer, not going to do that any more though. Back when I did that, you couldn't clear the catalyzed enamels like Imron. At least that has changed.
