Paints not really the issue, prep is. Any good 2 pac paint will do it really, but Ive used perfection black a few times. Good primer on rusty spots (after rust is removed) and make sure its spotless.

You can get merc black in spray cans from most chandlerys too.. but its not great. Painted the thermostat cover on mine with it during the summer and already looks crap..
