Default Found a great rattle can paint

I painted one of my front wheels with rustolem aluminum spray paint, looked like crap. I picked out 2 of my best factory rims, used the brush on aircraft remover, worked great, garden hose took them to bare metal, sanded and primed them. Stopped in at autozone after work today to pick out a color. Decided on vht cast iron engine enamel. Im sure most of you guys have used this before but to the ones that haven't, this stuff goes on better than any spray paint I've ever used. It has to cure at 200 degrees for 20 minutes, nothing a propane torch cant fix. You'd swear it was factory paint on them. I'll take some pics of them when i get my tires put on Tuesday or Wednesday and see how the paint holds up to the tire changer.
