Default Looking for successful DIY paint jobs. Anyone?

As some of you may have seen the board im referring to is what I think to be a 2007 NS Premier T5. I finished the swallowtail cutout and have sanded down the beat to shit old topsheet. I am not looking for a flashy paint job. Just going to go flat black and maybe a sticker or two.

I have read a lot about people using automotive paints/primers/sealers, but with little success regarding durability. I am not expecting factory durability but maybe make it through a season or two without it getting totally destroyed.

I came across VHT Epoxy spray paint. It seems to be mostly geared toward high temp applications and supposedly is very durable. Has anyone here used the product? Anyone here vouch for how well it holds up in cold temperatures or with regard to flex? Here is the product Im asking about...

VHT Epoxy All Weather Paint

If noone here has tried it I will be the guinnea pig. Only 8 bucks a can and I can strip it down if it really sucks. Or just leave it as is for that freshly worn out look!
