    I suggest u paint them white first to get the red brighter, any metal paint should work.

    sand them, clean them, primer them, paint them.

    Make sure you know how to paint as well. Judging from your posts, you have no idea how to use spray paint so you should read up on it a bit. No, its not as simple as pointing and shooting, unless you want a horrible finish.
