Red face Painting Aluminum Sliding Door

I need to paint an aluminum sliding door. It is factory painted and is showing signs of wear. What is the recommended method for painting aluminum (exterior). I am concerned that paint will just peal/flake off.

As long as the surface is clean and good paint is applied it shouldn't peel. Latex is usually recomended for aluminum but since a sliding door is heavier stock you can use oil or latex. Clean the metal so that any dirt, oil or oxidation is removed.
