Welcome to the diy forums!

First you need to clean it well!!! Assuming it is covered in aluminum you can brush, roll or spray it with a high quality latex house paint. Don't use flat latex but atleast a satin sheen, preferably gloss or semi-gloss. No primer is needed.

If there is any steel that needs painting it will need to be done with an oil base enamel, prime if there is any rust or bare metal.
