Why don't you want to use POR 15?

Anyone have any suggestions on what paint and what seam sealer would work best.And should I seam seal before or after painting
If you clean the metal and prep the surface properly POR 15 goes on smooth as glass even with a brush. Just scuff the surface and paint with your choice of interior color.
I am using window flashing (the kind you can get at Lowes/ home depot) it's an 1/8th inch thick and has a metal backing. It's much cheaper and goes on great. If you put the coatings on it doesn't matter what color the paint is and your using on the floor only anyway. (Inside)
If you want to go on the outside I would still use POR 15 or you could use Master's Series.
If you don't want to use something so expensive then use Farm Implement paint at any paint store it's bullet proof.
