Less toxic to work with
easy to buy, I can get it at the local paint shop easily, and it bonds well with this primer(bought both together).
Use the acrylic semi-gloss. Get one formulated for bathrooms & kitchens as they have mildewcides in them.

One big advantage of this choice is it can be colour matched so if you can get a sample of your existing colour, you can have them make more.

If you choose a standard colour instead, it will be available indefinitely - they keep all their old mixing formulas so as long as you know it, they can look it up and mix it for you.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
