Default Primer for baseboard heaters

Wondering what you folks prefer as you go to primer for baseboard heaters. A little bit of rust. I only know what I learned from one guy who’s been painting 40 years, but very old school and would never try anything new. Thanks.

I've used spray paint in the past, with good results.

If they are the ugly brown ones that are very common in my area, we used to always have a quart of bm Lennox tan in oil satin impervo. Matched close and didn't dry fast even if the heat was on.

On steel baseboard heaters that have shown bits of rust, none of the water based paints worked; only Rustoleum primer + Rustoleum oil based enamel paint has worked for me. I brush it on.
