I usually use PPG Omni, single stage acrylic enamel, plus add a "wet look" hardener. Very durable, and a decent price too.

How does the PPG hold up to being scratched ? The NAPA paint I used on the PK when scratched makes big jagged scratches , maybe PPG would be better ,

I'm a far cry from a painter , but there's lots of web sites to tell you how . Also I use a HF touch-up gun for the times when I want to paint something a little more then a few cans , much cheaper in the long run and you don't need that big of a compressor it seems for it.
