I have an elderly mobile home with aluminum (I'm guessing - it dents easily) siding. I'd like to paint it.
What paint and what primer?
Filling in dents with what?
How to prepare - TSP wash or is something else better?
What about rust mark (running down from the roof).
Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

When we painted our mobile home we were advised to replace all of the rusted screws--we did but wow took some time and muscle but we got a really nice job and it lasted. We used Benjamin Moore paint no need to prime with it but did take 2 coats, a semi gloss. I still see our old MH and the paint job still looks great 20 years later. Benjamin Moore is expensive like 42 a gallon but in July they have a sale I think $ 5 a gallon,it is great paint. Yes on the prep of TSP and caulk everything you can make sure it is a paint able caulk. As for dents?? well you might see if you can get the dent puller for an auto but not sure if it will work? I would just paint them. Have fun ....
