How best to redo swim platform braces???

I want to refresh my swim platform brackets, are they cast aluminium? Can they be powder coated or just etched primer and paint?

THX

cast aluminum - should be ok for powdercoat... I'd probably go for powder coat... but that's me if I was doing the project. But looks like a cleaning and touch up would be enough....all depends on your MCOCD level..

There's also dip kits...
