What's a good rattle can paint?

Going to be doing some painting in garage in engine compartment and probably wheel wells. Too cold up here in Cleveland now to do outside now and want to do in somewhat small areas at time. Figured too much cleanup to break out paint gun for these areas in small bursts.

I can get custom mixed rattle cans of real single stage auto paint at local paint store for $20 a pop, but was wondering if there's a good off the shelf rattle can paint? Thought about rustolium, but wasn't sure how well it holds up, and don't want this stuff wiping off with brake clean.

Eastwood trunk paint

This is my engine compartment I did with eastwood trunk paint followed by satin diamond clear all rattle cans and seems to be very durable once cured I hit it with a hammer by accident and the paint didn't chip.

Why not paint it body color, like Porsche did?

I like DupliColor, especially the clear coat. It seems to have good durability.
