Hi Ron...

You will clean the aluminum with a phosphoric acid compound... Then you will
prime it with an aluminum compatible etching primer... The paint can be any
of the polyurethane based paints.. Use a low gloss paint in a medium, blue
grey... You could get fancy and look up WWII aircraft camouflage paint
schemes :>)

I am not specifying american brand names on the materials because you cannot
get them in  england, old chap... Drop by the nearest airport and chat up the
mechanic... If he's a good fellow he will send you on to his supplier... If
not, a (good) automobile body shop should also be able to give you the brand
names you need...

Cheers ... Denny
