Default Paint Chipping

I have prepped 2 motors
removed rust and ospho coated the cast iron, etc
then used self etching primer
then top coated with rustoleam enamel paint
and when I can baked it in an oven for a short time
as I heard this was the best way to get a durable harder finish
I have had multiple chipping with doing this
I realize I am not going to stop all accidents etc .
but seems I haven't got a harder finish

did I miss a step or what am I doing wrong ???
