How to paint aluminium

Alright guys , just looking for some advice on what paint to get to paint an aluminium ladder with, it's for a high seat so a brown/green would be best.

Cheers , Lloyd

you can get self etch made up in a aerosol from a car paint factor and or 2k matt paint by the Lt'r . you can roll it on with a rad roller or just use a flat base coat aerosol.

also give it a quick key up with a pot green cleaner pad

Get some "Hammerite special metals primer" followed by Hammerite paint. I used it on 7 aluminium highseat ladders about 4 years ago and its worked very well and is quick to apply..
