When I've used rustoleum in the past it seems to absolutely need a primer underneath. Have you been priming?
Yes, you do need to use a good quality primer

I use the rustoleum clean metal primer and i make sure to obey the drying times.
The paint just acts some times like peeling latex, i wonder if it may be the rust converter i use corroseal and brush it on
Paint jobs arnt bad just not as durable as i would like always touching up when putting back together
One thing i dont do is wash the metal before priming since i have the rust convert on it
maybe using rust convert is a unessesary step that i could eleminate

Also,are you sanding the metal so that the primer,paint has something to "grab hold of" ?
Now I can't say whether the rust convert may be at fault,as I don't used that.I sand blast to remove rust,but I realize not everyone has a sand blaster.
Is the primer you are using,a sanding,or non-sanding primer?I like to use a surfacer/primer,which is sandable.
You could use an epoxy primer on the bare metal surfaces,it is very good for corrosion protection,and also a really good adhesion promoter for any kind of top coat that you may want to put on it.That includes fillers,primers,or paint.

Is there a other type out there that is better to use ??
I do use a sandable primer and the metal is coarse when i apply rust convert that is
I wish i had a sandblaster and a blasting cabinet :-)
