Need advice on painting grille.

Hey guys,
I don't know if this is in the right section, but I'm looking for some advice to paint my front grille.

This weekend, I repainted the grille with Duplicolor perfect match, because my grille had chips and rust. The color is dead on, and I did a nice job, but I'm afraid that it wont hold up well with time, and that it'll start peeling off and chipping too easily. I would like your advice on how I could repaint it using something more durable, that would preferably match oem color, thanks.

There is nothing wrong with that paint, and it is durable. Just make sure that you did proper prep work prior to painting it (sanding, rust treatment, primer). Shoot a couple coats of clearcoat over it and call it good.
