    Well i went straight from here to a yahoo search and found this

    In general, look for paints which:
    - do not contain lead, zinc or chromate
    - are "high adhesion", formulated to bond with the metal
    surface
    - are hard-wearing
    - are fast drying

    Thought you might wanna read it too. I listed the website
    incase you wanted to read the whole article. Hope i was
    helpfull.
