Question Mag Re-due

I had some extra time on my hands so I thought I would re-due my 20 round M1A magazines. The are currently parkerized. I have not done this before so I thought I would get some feedback. My plan was to:
1. disassemble
2. clean with degreaser
3. scuff with scotch bright and/or 220 grit paper
4. paint base plate and magazine but not the follower
5. reassemble

I wanted to use a rattle can paint and the color would match the camo in my stock. What brand and type of paint is recommended and should I use a flat clear coat for added protection against wear and tear. I know I could duracoat or ceracoat but that is a little more that I wanted to spend right now.Any other advice would be helpful.

Thanks,
MIke
