How do I paint my anodized aluminum mast?

It is difficult to paint over anodizing. If it is in very poor shape remove it before painting. To paint anodized first degrease using Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Then give it a heavy sanding using 60 or 80-grit sandpaper. Apply one thin coat of Vinyl-Lux Primewash 353/354 that has been thinned 25% with Vinyl-Lux Thinner 355. Wait 1 hour but no more than 24 and apply 1 coat of Epoxy Primekote 404/414 thinned 25% or Interprotect 2000E thinned 10-15% with 2333N. Allow to dry overnight and apply a second coat of epoxy primer. Sand and apply Perfection or Brightside.
