I used Krylon on my hood and so far so good for primer.

If you have a bumper to bumper with a paint section in your town, they should be able to put regular automotive acrylic enamal paint in spray cans for you. It costs about $8 per can but it is well worth it. didn't do my jeep butg did the entire interior of a 65 chevrolet truck with it.

Rustoleum blue metallic with 3 years of wear n tear. took about 10 cans I think. Just like all painting, it depends mostly on the prep.

Buy one of those cheesy pistol grip handles... it's worth it.

Silver never looks the way you think it will IMHO. Something to consider before you shoot it.
