The front and rear caps are not aluminum.

They are steel that was galvanized.

The only fix, is to strip the paint on those 2 caps, treat the galvanized metal with a mild acid, clean it up, paint it with a very good primer, wait a day or 2 and then color coat it.

Or, leave it alone.

Spot painting it will do nothing, since corrosion is the cause of the "flecking".
