What kind of paint for hardtop?

My son and I are going to repaint the hardtop on his 94 YJ. What type of spray paint is the best to use?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I used Rustoleum oil based paint in a can and rolled it on with a foam roller. It hasn't scratched on me in three years.

What paint brand and color would you use to best match nutmeg interior. The top I have is not as dark as nutmeg but not tan either. It is that standard rust color of older CJ tops.
