Default Painting Cart Roof

I know there are alot of threads out there where people have commented on the best way to paint the roof of their cart. I have a CC Precedent with a beige roof and want to paint it black. I would like to do so using rattle cans since I don't have any spray equiptment, but would like input from others that have done it before.
So I guess my questions are:
What is the best stuff to use?
How many coats did it take and how long did it take to set?
Do you have any tips/tricks if you were to go back and do it again?

Thanks to all that look, and especially those that reply!

Herculiner roll on bed liner worked for me. Looked OK & was tough as nails. It's all in the prep work..... gotta sand it (rough it up) & clean it really well.

Duplicolor makes a spray on bed liner too.

Krylon Fusion worked very well on mine. Easy to touch up if it gets scratched up too.

I painted a tan roof black with krylon fusion and i thought it looked cheap. I roughed it up and used several coats and it still chipped and scratched easily. I wouldn't do it again.

I used bumper paint in a can. You can get it for about 3 bucks a can and it looks good. I put 2 coats on after I scuffed it up and wiped it down. It took about 5 or 6 cans. It has been pretty durable also. Figure can touch it up every couple of years but I think it was one of the best things I ever done. Matter of fact a buddy of mine who sales carts and builds them uses the bumper paint on all the carts he does. Hope this helps.

Fusion didn't work good for me. If I aerosol one I use Sem plastic paint. It is available at most Auto body paint supply stores and Oreillys. Sprays and touchs up easy.

what did you guys use to scuff the tops up? It seems as though the plastic bumper paint is the favorite, I think thats what I might try. How scuffed up does the top need to be before painting?
Thanks

I just took a sanding block I had laying around that I had used when doing sheetrock work around the house. Lightly sanded over the entire roof and the wiped it down.

I used a damp rag. Just let it dry good before you paint.
