Painting metal garage door, advice please.

I was wondering if I can get some advice? I am going to prep and paint an old(pre painted) metal garage door. I want to colour match the front door which is a dark green but not sure what paint I should go with. Originally I was going to go with Hammerite garage door paint but the Buckingham green is far too light, is the straight to rust(smooth dark green) good for garage doors? I am not new to painting but I have never painted a standard metal garage door before and want to create a real good finish without any brush marks/sag. Please can someone recommend either an all in one easy to apply paint or a primer and paint that will work well and comes in dark green?
Also any advice when prepping I would appreciate, I have a wire brush and sand paper would I have to strip ALL of the old paint off?
Thanks so much.
