In my experience, the glossier paints last longer than flatter paints, likely due to the increased surface area of the flatter paints attracting dirt and corrosives from the road.

Thank you. That's a good point. For now I am just using what I have on hand. I may have to take it off and do it again. It's part of my education with cars.

Here is a picture of the cover after I got it painted with the Rust-oleum primer.

I was able to get the cover on the differential today. I need to get the oil in the differential. I won't be able to drive it for a while due to snow.
