That sounds like it would work. As long as it is NOT water based you should be ok. Make sure you use the proper reducer (will say on the can) with it. Uretrhane is one of the older type of auto paints.
Remember tho, If you are rolling you will have orange peel even tho it will be glossy. Maybe you can live with that but to get rid of the peel you will have to sand which takes away the shine so that will require buffing to get the shine back.

Mike is right. Rustoleum makes products outside of the U.S. and while it's usually the same product, they put a different name to it. For example, Canada's version is Tremclad which is still owned by Rustoleum. Good luck with your project and let us know if there is anything else we can do.
