You'll get a better and more robust finish if you have it powder coated.

i just got done painting everything on mine. these are the steps i used

1. sand with 180 grit
2. spray with a good etching primer
3. spray with 2k urethane primer
4. wet sand with 600
5. spray your base coat (i also wet sanded between each coat with 1000 grit)
6. clear coat it (wet sanded with 1500 grit between coats)

Painting aluminum is tricky, prepping the surface and using the right primers are very important. I sprayed 3 coats of base, and 4 coats of clear, should have we sanded a little more to get rid of all the "orange peel", but still turned out pretty good. just be sure you let it dry between coats, and fully cure before you try to reassemble
