There is a new paint out there that fits your description. I think it is called Rustoleum or something like that. Its new.

Go ahead, spray POR-15. I'm sure the school will be okay with that.

Two part epoxy paint, i.e. Imron.


Just be sure you have a good fresh air supply.



Or powder coat them.

POR 15 = isocyantes.

Isocyantes = B A D .

Also, POR 15 needs humidity to dry - it won't dry in a good, ventilated, climate-controlled paint booth...

TSC sells Valspar tractor and implimant paint. Did the Frame on my S-10 with it 10 years ago and it is still holding up. Shit is durable as hell and lasts a long time. Used it on a buddys mud truck and its changed hands a few times now and still looks great.
