Aluminum roof - paint with??

I've stripped the roof down to the bare aluminum. Do I use my oil base paint or paint with PDM for metal roofing?
TIA.

Neither.

Mobile home roof paint. Readily available at most places that sell paint. It's been discussed and recommended here many times before. It's really the best choice.

I used Sta-Kool when I had a TT with a metal roof. I used Sta-Kool because it's white.

That seems very risky. Did you seal the seams with the roof paint first?
