I used Glasurit paint and was very pleased with it,used to work in a bodyshop and sprayed a few different brands and Glasurit has a very hard clear that has lasted very well for me.

That is kind of a bad question. It is like asking who makes the best truck. you know what I mean. For me any thing I want really nice I use PPG and if I just want it nice I have been using DuPont's cheap paint system I forgot the name. If I was you I would find out where you are going to get your paint and they usually have spec sheets. That will help you get acquainted with different types. Also prep work is the key. Sorry if this don't help, but most people have their brand.

Ive used PPG Omni and it was nice. Sherwin Williams Ultra7000 paint was nice too just expensive. But to answer your question you'd probably want to ask someone more professional.

PPG seems to be the best for me.
