How to paint engine compartment peices

Hello everyone,

You know when you get a rebuilt engine or buy a new car, the long block sometimes is a nice shinny black color and it lasts a long time. How do they do that?!?!

In the past, i have tried to use high temperature enamal paint from walmart and it lasts only a couple months and starts to fade or come off. So i never done it again. I did NOT use clearcoat, was that my problem?

Should i use black primer, then black enamal paint, then clearcoat? anyway to speed up the curing process or make it more durable? Thanks in advance.
