have you tried the seymour paint? Their MRO line has a high solids content and is pretty good. Do you buy from IMS? They stock it.

I use SEM paints. They have some pretty tough paint, I use chip guard for bumpers and such stays on really good, but has a textured finish. They also have a really good self etching primer.

If you're looking for silver, then Stainless Steel Hi-Temp Coating from Eastwood is the baddest shit on the planet. Comes in spray cans and in regular cans. I've used it from the can with a spray gun for Cast Iron manifolds and it doesn't even turn colors. If you want colors, then most enamel sprays are about the same.

Valspar tractor/implement paint is the best rattlecan paint I have ever used. YMMV.

VHT and Rustoleum heat resistant paints outlasts their standard paints. Limited colors.

[EDIT] Just replied to a four year old+ post.

I've never used it but there is a 2K post-catalyzed rattle can spray paint that has been discussed on this forum before. I can't imagine there would be anything tougher. I do not know how user friendly or expensive it is.

If somebody doesn't chime in with the brand I'll look it up and post back later.

Fuji 2903-T70 Mini-Mite 3-T70 HLVP Spray System is the best paint sprayer brand known to me so far.. It is portable and easy to transport. I have just buy my mini-mite 3 few months back and refinished an antique bed. Turned out great. Easy to use, adjust and clean. Be sure to properly thin your material and do test sprays. Seems to be a solid unit at this point and will update after more projects.

I have the Fuji semi-pro unit and it has been great for spraying larger stuff like doors for my house. I still have rattle cans on hand as cleaning the gun isn't always worth the time and mess for smaller parts.

I have had good look with Seymour and SEM for auto restoration on small parts. I also highly recommend Wurth.

For maximum hardness they sell 2K in a can now. Snap the bottom to activate the hardener, can is good for about 48 hours. Otherwise, Rustoleum Professional has held up really well for me. I usually clean all the rust off with a wire wheel, convert with Loctite Rust Converter, prime with Rustoleum Professional Primer, then topcoat with Rustoleum Professional. Works great.
