I use Rust Oleum Painters Touch 2x. Its about $4-5 a can, and it goes on THICK. 1-2 passes and youre good.

I have had the best luck with Rustoleum products I spray 2 coats of their self etching primer and then 3-4 coats of the color and then 2-3 coats of clearcoat.

I use rustoleum mostly but pretty much anything works as long as you put the effort in to clean prime sand paint then clear if your just going rattle can coat Id suggest cleaning then sanding a bit with 180 grit then just slap a couple coats

Thats the nice thing about Painters Touch is that if the surface is clean itll stick. Ive been painting over other paint with it with no issues. For example, my Rally.
