Use a two part LPU paint! You'll be very sorry, after you realize how much time you actually put into this, to find a one part paint failing after a couple of years..

Awlgrip, Sterling & Alexseal are all good polyester LPU's and Imron and Awlcraft 2000 are good Acrylic LPU's.

Interlux Perfection is a two part polyurethane, though NOT an LPU, with similar cure characteristics to Alwgrip it's just less durable but still FAR better than any one part paint..
