Preparation is everything. If there is rust perforation, no paint is going to hold up as it will blister from underneath. If the base metal is good, sand, wipe with solvent, prime, and simply use your paint of choice. I bought some spray bomb urethane paint that I used on the mirrors on my motorcycle, and I couldn't believe the way it stayed glossy black for years. Bought it at an autoparts store just on the North edge of Grand Forks.
