    Was just about to suggest Duralux; it's excellent stuff.
    That said, as has been mentioned prep is everything--it makes all the difference in the world.

    We were using Sherwin Williams Kem-400
    Switched to a water based paint and have had great results. The water base is tougher, more scratch resistant, more fade resistant, easier to apply, and eliminated our emissions problem. Like everyone said, prep is the key. If you use oil based paint, use an etching primer. With our water based paint, no primer is used. We wipe the metal down with a cleaner and spray.
    I would strip ALL of the paint from the surface you want to repaint. Use an etching primer, let dry for a couple days, the shoot Chem 400.
