    primer... zinc chromate is a must for bare metal applications.. then a good epoxy primer on top...

    topcoat.... really a tossup between single stage and base/clear in urethane.. they both have advantages... single stage is generally easier for spot repairs.. base/clears wont oxidize as bad but can be substantially pricier... base/clear is the only way to go for a metallic.. straight up enamels are a dinosauric product from the 70's, 80's....

    any of the major paint manufacturers will have some good products.. i prefer Glasurit, but PPG, Sickens, Dupont, etc all have good products as well...
