If I was going with a paint only on the bottom, I would lean towards Dupont's Fullthane two part polyurethane. I've used it (actually was "Imron" then ) on my steel sailboat topsides and it still looks good after 15 years ocean cruising :shock: .
I put it on my Titan (sprayed) and it is incredible. Very tough, and if you screw up ( runs etc. ) which I did, you can wet sand with 1000 wet paper and polish anything out. A great shine is easy to achieve and it dries and flows out unbelievable.
Available at good automotive paint supply shops.

I'll agree with Slug, After four years of use, the Hot Rod's Imron bottom paint looks like new even after many miles of trailering.

Roller application of automotive paints can be a challenge. Due to VOC regulations, we've had to switch from DuPont to Sherwin-Williams products. For roller application, they have a rolling reducer for use in their solvent-based urethane coatings :
