THey are just plain aluminum.  I doubt that they are coated with anything.  Clean a few with paint thinner and a green scrubbing pad to roughen them up just a bit and spray with enamel.  Should work great.  YOu 'll have to spray in several positions to get full coverage though.

Better always, with aluminium to etch-prime before painting, no need to "roughen" 'em.
