Pot metal frames

I have a pot metal frame I stripped with a metal stripper liquid. I know it can not be anoed. My question is what paint to use to finish it? I also have a Steel ASA do I use the same paint?

Thankx.

For longer durability I'd use a specialized coating such as powdercoating, duracoating, or cerakote.

I was just gonna say...

Have fun with it. What kinda finish do you want? There's all sorts of specialty paints that you can use that'll stick much better than spray paint.

Stock as much as I can, it just might be a shelf queen. I have thinking of using automotive paint?

for DIY, use self-etching primer under a good automotive paint. Then seal with a flat or gloss clear coat.
