Sandblast it, epoxy primer [545 Awlgrip], paint Awlgrip.

The sandblasting will etch the alum very well and still be fairly smooth. 545 Awlgrip is a epoxy primer surfacer.

What Kevin said. They also sent me matching paint for mine. One suggestion....if you have any metal to bracket contact, place a teflon or similar washer there. Thats where mine started corroding first.

I agree with WC266. A nylon washer between the stainless fastner and the alum bracket. Maybe some Tuf-Gel on the bolt threads too.
Gott'a keep the 2 metals seperated.
