Default Panel paint for a Piper Tomahawk

I need to paint my Tomahawk's panel (metal not plastic unlike my
Warrior) and change the screws. I know that there will be some sending
involved but I would like to find out what kind of paint to use.

Thanks,

If it is metal, and you are planning on taking it completely out, why not
have it powder coated? Much more durable than paint.

Well,
It wasn't as easy as I thought, becasue all the instruments have to
come out as well. (Hey I am new, go easy on me! grin) So , instead I
did some touch ups on areas that were already bare or rusted.
I also took all the screws that had rusted heads, sanded them and put
them back in the original place. Now they all shine over a black metal.
It looks much nicer than before..

After all this aircraft will be a trainer, not something for airshows.

Thanks,

If I ever build another experimental, I think I'll have the panel anodized
black... Paint and powder coat chip too easily when you remove and replace
the screws that hold instruments in place...
