Ok, I'm planning to repaint my Lidl dish cos it sticks out like a sore thumb behind my window, so I need some tips on what preparation I'll need to do before I paint the dish plate & arm, obviously I've removed the BSB logo and the bullet hole stickers and will give it a good wash with soap and water. Do I need to lightly sand the surfaces so the paint get's a good hold on the existing coating or on the bare Aluminium pole or should I just spray it after the cleaning?

Also, any suggestions on colour? :D
