Powder coating is much better and will never come off or scratch, but is expensive.  Fortunately for me my neighbor is friends with the guy that owns our local powder coat shop.

As Larry said, rattle can paint can work good also.  When I paint metal parts I use engine enamel in a spray can and I bake it on after it is dry which really toughens it up.  Wife got mad when she caught me using the kitchen oven and making the house smell and literally drug the oven out the front door so now I use a heat gun or at least make sure she won't be home before the smell goes away.

The rattle can "engine paint" from AutoZone seems to be holding up well
on my mount after nearly 20 years and 700 hours.  "Lifetimes" are still
just measured in years.
