    Think you will need to wet'n'dry sand it first to take the shine of it, otherwise the paint will peel off

    As said run it down with Wet and Dry to make it dull and then spray it with Acid Etch Primer and then normal primer and you know the rest. Acid Etch chemicaly eats into the metal to make it stick good and proper
