I'm using Rust-oleum metal primer. Is Rust-oleum protective enamel good for a topcoat? Or does anyone have a better recommendation?

Use an etching primer on the bare metal. That will prep it much better. Not sure what color or appearance you are going for with the metal. The appliance epoxy paint is very durable, but gloss in finish. I use that for a strong coating then cover it in flat if I don't want the glossy look.

First off it appears I can't spell "metal"....:(
I hadn't thought of appliance epoxy. I don't care for gloss look but it doesn't really matter, it will be dirty anyway (it's suspension parts). They will be black.

I'm painting a shackle flip bracket kit and rear bumper. Brackets are done.

Bought from 4XInnovations. Bumper has hitch receiver built in and Hi-Lift notches plus mounts for tow shackles.

Toyota wanted $470 for their bumper.
$1400 for the receiver with electrical harness (package deal only).
