I have used Dupont, PPG, and Sherwin Williams auto paint for years. My brother likes the Sherwin Williams, he does get a 30% discount with them. I have had the best luck with Dupont but the others have also been good. I had some orange peel that I didn't like once with the Sherwin Williams, but I think we got it to hot on the baking.
Rattle can, I feel that duplicolor lays the best. Plastiakote is hit or miss and seems to go on to thick. I used rustoleum 10 years ago just not on a car and it always seemed fine on what I painted. I tried both of rustoleums rattle can engine and auto paint. It didn't like the 2nd coat on the auto and nothing worked on the engine. Once it dries it feels like a candle almost greasy. I have used rattle can Krylon on metal for the most part, but not on engine. I have always had good luck with it. If any one has used there engine paint I would like to hear how it turned out, it's durability, and how long it has lasted, plus if it burns off easy.
I tried some rattle can paint from tractor supply for farm implements hoping it would be a bit tougher. It turned out nice ,but just like all rattle can paint, it is to thin and isn't as durable as using a spray gun. Just to much thinner in the rattle can paint.
POR-15 has come out very well for me. The paint is 9 years old on my frame and looks as good as new, still. I spray gunned it with POR-15 reducer
I use Rubberize-it on coil springs. I Spray it with mineral spirits. It comes out like silly string but puts a nice coat on the spring and is very flexible. That is 9 years old and still looks good also.
