I used Hirsh Ford Green and Dupli-Color black, both in spray, and I was happy
with both.

Do NOT use primer on cast iron parts!  And do not use the
Dupli-Color primer on anything!.  I used the primer on a bead-blasted oil pan,
and I found that it was softer than the paint, and allow the paint to chip off
easily.  I ended up re-blasting the pan to remove all my new paint, and
redoing it without the primer.  The paint worked just fine without the primer.
