I use this stuff http://pc.dupont.com/dpc/en/US/html/visitor/common/pdfs/b/product/nsn/Nason/422-05.pdf
its cheap and works well and goes on super fast with a spray gun. its gloss when it first goes down but doesn't take long before it fades down to a nice satin color.

I've used VHT roll bar spray paint and VHT epoxy paint and had great success. Covers very well, both are very durable, and available at most parts houses so if you just need to touch up an area you can run down at 830 on a friday night, pickup a can, an whamo, car looks good again :D
On my rock crawler I used a oil based primer and sprayed it followed by Rustolum industrial oil based paint. Its held up pretty well and is easy to touch up with a rattle can. For my new DSR1 I'm thinking more on the lines of powder coating because it shouldn't get near the amount of rock abuse.

Rusty, like everything else, the more you are willing to pay, the better the product.
BEST: powder coating, most durible, highest price but coming down. I won't even shoot car and truck chassis anymore. My powder coater will coat a frame for $250. I have my sand blaster blast it and I load it and take it to him. I can't even buy the paint & primer material for that with shop discount.
GOOD: Emron from DuPont, most durable paint out there but if you use it, make sure you have a fresh air helmet or a 3M respirator with VERY GOOD ventilation, Stuff is tough as nails but tough on your lungs and brain if you are inhaling it.
WORST: Anything rattle can! Don't even waste your time or money. Product must be at least a 2 part system with catlyst to be anything near durable. Do it once and be done with it! Hope this helps
