I'd sand it down real good first. That's why the paint chipped off in the first place, poor prep.

I have an aluminum diamond plate tailgate cap thing. I sanded and scuffed the life out of it, primed and painted it. No problems, except when concrete blocks slide across it lol.

Prep work. Do it good.
