My wife, Leigh, was so excited to see me at the kitchen sink she grabbed the camera! Not really. She is a gourmet cook, so I am a gourmet dish washer. I would normally do this outside, but even Georgia gets cold in January.
I do like the look of shinny aluminum, but I prefer to scuff the surface to aide the adhesion of the primer. I use the Scotchbrite Ultra Fine pads to clean and scuff the surface. It leaves a ‘Satin’ finish which I presume gives the primer a better grip.
