Paint anodized aluminum storm door?

mahatmacat1June 27, 2008

Is there any way to do this? I want to paint it the same color as the door behind it, so we don't have a brown frame around our red house door...if I can do it, what primer should I use? Do I need to take the whole frame off or can I paint it in place, carefully? Or what do people do when they have a storm door in a frame color that they want to change? Take it off and have it electrostatically painted? But can I choose my color, if I do that? I'd really prefer to do it myself.

Thanks very much.

Never mind; I found this thread somewhere else that has good info, if anyone's looking.
