    Krylon Rust Tough Enamel. The Rustoleum stuff is okay, too. But I swear by the Krylon Rust Tough Enamel. The biggest thing is good prepwork with that rattle can. You prep the surfave 100% properly and that paint will stick like a MOTHERFUCKER.

    That is a lot cheaper than the Krylon. Both in price and in quality.

    Krylon flat black won't streak. You have to actually TRY to fuck it up for it to not come out perfectly flat and even.

    You can save a couple bucks if you buy it in bulk online. They also have quarts or gallons you can buy and put in a gun. But even the aerosol cans are cheaper to buy in bulk online.

    Use the Bumper paint. It's flat and sprays out very nice. It's bumper and trim paint.

    Dupli-color flat black trim paint from Auto Zone works really good used it on my bronco and it came out nice! It's like $6 for a can I did my bronco with 7 or 8 cans.
