i would just use regular spray paint... i dont think there is anything that you can buy for cheap that will not eventually start wearing off....

Anything from PPG is usually excellent.
My dad was a painter for 15 years and he would never not use PPG paints.

Rustoleum primer, then 3-4 coats of flat black. I shoot it with a cheap HVLP gun. Painted alot of homemade bumpers and racks like that, and holds up good.



Everyhting on the above truck was homeade and painted with Rustoleum.
