I've also attached my attempt with the Rustoleum Regal Red Enamel Gloss Protective, the color was horrible compared to the Dupli-color. The finish is much more professional with the Dupli-color. I used to airbrush a lot more than now, and this is a comparable experience. I no longer have an exhaust and hood due to COVID-19, so, this is the next best option for DIY.
Instead of the Rustoleum Regal Red Enamel, I would suggest using the Dupli-color Cardinal Red BFM0306 for highlighting spare parts on my GS500E motorcycle. It was impossible to find the same red, and Colorrite costs over 16.95 for their aerosol, plus their clear coats which requires over $60 to purchase.
So, this saved me. I'm currently working on the chain guard, engine guards, and will start working on the battery cover soon. This is the exact, if not close, Candy Anteres Red for Suzuki GS500E 1992 to 2009 bikes. I'm very happy.
Bought the Perfect Match High Gloss Clear Coat BCL0125. Haven't done the top coat yet. But looking forward to it.
Many reviews mentioned that the spray nozzle had issues. I did not have the same experience. I also used a spray grip, this helped to spray more evenly.
I've used other Rustoleum products before, and am using the Rustoleum Black Sandable Primer before doing any of these coats. That is doing great. The other product that I also suggest is the rust prevention Rustoleum primer (comes in Bronze/Cooper color). Hope this helps.

We had some decorative pumpkins made from welded horseshoes. We painted them with this orange. One can was enough to paint all three pumpkins although there are a couple of spots that could use a little more paint. It will work well enough to have the pumpkins out for the fall and keep them protected while making them look good.
This info has helped me so much: this color is perfect to cover painted wicker to make it look natural again!! I always thought wicker was ruined once painted white or black, but nope! This is something any Boho decor lover should have on hand!
I have used rust-oleum on several different projects and I’m always happy with the way it turns out. This is the first time I’ve used the product on patio furniture. We used a wire brush first. It has a nice smooth finish and I’m looking forward to seeing how long it lasts.
