Is the Verdict In? Does Painting the Roof Cool Things?

My mistake, I mixed up zinc chromate (and its modern replacements) with self etching primer.

Typing before thinking gets me sometimes.

But seriously, i have painted over bare but sanded aluminum for decades, it sticks well.

Of all of the trailers in the below link, and of many, many others not pictured, zinc chromate was only used on the red trailer.

That said, I did use it on the red trailer that I wanted to be "high end "....

But I didn't use it on the top of my Airstream.

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......
