Only thing I can input is that you should make sure the spray cap for the paint sprays evenly. Some I've found are really fucked up and spray in an uneven pattern. no not like a hard centre soft edges kinda spray (I consider that "even"), I mean like a really fucked up spray pattern (culprit was dried paint and dirt or something stuck in the spray cap).

I'm not sure what "rattle cans" are so I can't really say anything about that (if they're the paint with metal "marbles" inside to mix the paint before spraying they should be fine at least that's what comes to mind when you say "rattle cans").

Krylon (from Canadian Tire (or Walmart)) works wonders from what I hear from other kraken owners on the forum. Basically any mediocre paint should be fine. Remember lots of thin coats is better than one heavy one and also helps to prevent drips. You should have all the knowledge to do all this since it seems like you know a bit about painting (with the roughing up with sandpaper thing).

Sorry dude but you could please fix up the spelling and grammar a bit? It's kinda difficult to read :s.

Getting back to the topic, the type of primer you use is somewhat important for wear. Using craft sprays will shorten the life of your paint job. If you want a matte look, there maybe multi-surface heavy duty paints that replicate a matte finish. If you've already primed it I don't know if its smart to remove it, but just try to make sure your primer is a type that is recommended for outdoor/heavy duty use, even if it means the finish will not be exactly how you want. Function>Form.

If you want actual products, stuff like this -> http://www.krylon.com/products/matte_finish/ works for most plastics. Just not sure if it will work with a primer.

yeah, also gloss paint is tougher, so painting with gloss solid color + matte varnish is tougher than just matte paint, or matte paint+matte varnish.

1000 sandpaper is a bit fine for that kind of work, I found that 400 and 600 give sufficient result and doesn't get clogged as fast.

Just use Krylon Camouflage System paint. No primer or sanding needed.
