Painting a Hard Top

I am in the process of buying a used hard top for my '91 YJ. The top is already primed. What type of paint should I use, or does it matter?

It doesn't matter too much since it won't rust, but I personally go with the better brand enamel paints and something made for outdoors is always good like Rustoleum.

Rattle can? make sure you use a good dewaxer, or the results will be sad, plus will peel

Rhino lining is another option.

dewaxer? I have never waxed my top. It was flat to begin with.
