    Clean them real well, then use a good primer and paint that are both designed for metal.

    If you can, remove the screen/storm window. Call Homedepot or Lowe's, and see what kind of paint you need for aluminum surface. It should be able to hold up in all kinds of weather. You may be able to spray paint it, but I would use a brush it, so you get and even finish. EJL.

    I taped everything off and spray painted with Rustoleum. Worked great!

    Go to your Home Improvement store and buy the product Recolor by Rusoleum. Simply wipe it on with cloth in kit. My doors were brown faded to light brown and one wipe restored them to original color. Works great on plastic, metal, vinyl, fiberglass and more. No mess and one box does several doors. Good for shutters too. Not too expensive. I got mine free on a Menard' s rebate.
