Don, probably the easiest thing is to paint them with metallic silver (aluminum) paint. Rustoleum brand works well. After you paint them, they'll be quite bright. Give them a coat of clear laquer. The clear tones down the bright aluminum shine, and seals it so the metallic color won't rub off. It's easy to touch up when required, only takes a few minutes, and makes a presentable looking tank when finished. Just be sure to mask the valve.
