Window frames

I'm changing felts and rubber strips on my window frames, had to take out of channels big chunks of glue, messy job
Those parts appears to be made out of aluminium, what would be the best way to re-spray them, any particular paint ?

Just pulled mine and was also debating if and how to re-finish the frames.

I'm pretty sure it's a bad idea but wonder how they would look color matched with body.

I'm thinking I'll lightly sand the outer visible face and use an automotive enamel, semi gloss black.

I need to hustle though, as there aren't many days left that will be warm enough to paint outdoors up here in Ottawa. Possibly get it done this weekend.

Let us know what you used and how it came out.

I'm also thinking on using countersunk rivets instead of flathead, the finishing rubber strip will probably seat better.

Mine are the same green everything else is, including the rubber seal on all of my fixed windows.

That's what I did and the paint stuck just fine.
