Chassis/underbody touch-up

I dont drive my car in snow/salt. I do occasionally drive it in the rain and I live in a humid area. I know many will think it is overkill with a car built with todays rust proofing, but I plan to own this car the rest of my life... and I hope to live a long time. I want to jack my car up and touch up any nicks from stones, lifts, etc. on the subframe and underbody. Plus I saw some points on the car where the body must have rested on the paint assembly line that never got paint.

What paint should I use on the subframe? What paint should I use on the underbody?

On my personal cars I would just use some rustoleum or some sort of rust preventing black spray paint on the suspension. Usually a satin black. Nothing crazy. Never tried to touch up the under body though. If your that into the under carriage of your ride you should add some after market suspension work. BMR powder coats everything and it looks good and lasts. Not to mention your Camaro will handle like a dream.
