Which paint should I use?

Since it is snowing here in the South and I am stuck inside, I am going to attempt to paint my strut tower brace myself. Which paint and primer is best to use for the brace or any under hood piece? I know there is a lot of sanding involved in prepping but didn't know which paint to use.

Thank you!

Krylon Fuzion paint works very well on plastic AND metal with little prep needed. I painted a rear strut brace on mt Cavalier with it and it looked like it had been powder-coated.
