I would like to paint existing anodized dark brown aluminium window frames to other color, say white, how should I do it? What type of color (metal color)? Any special treatment for exterior subjected to intense sun and rain (tropical climate, Bangkok, Thailand)? Thanks!

a_akanit, Sand the windows with 220 grit sandpaper and wipe down with paint thinner. I would use waterborne enamel for its bonding properties and ability to take the expanding and contracting that metal goes through....Mike
