Rustoleum should be fine, automotive paint should be great.  Montana Gold has fantastic reviews.  Properly prepare your surface is most important.

If you have the credits for it, I'd go with automotive personally, and like what Sep said, prep is the most important.

I personally use rustoleum with automotive primer in the same brand. I mask the primer the same as I do the regular paint. A good trick is to mask less damage than you want and then be creative scraping the plates to add more layers of damage. It looks more natural. Aka, rubbing the plates on gravel, sandpaper, etc...
