Most paint removers will eat aluminum.

Makes nice hydrogen gas too. Boom!

Get heavy duty oven cleaner in gallons. It will attack aluminum but not fast enough to worry about it. Just don't leave it soaking. After the paint is gone you will have an etched surface ready to paint as opposed to a shiny surface that the paint will peel off from.

You can use any paint stripper sold at most auto parts stores or walmart, Home Depot etc. Brands like Klean-Strip, aircraft remover, or citrus. Use as directed and it will be fine on aluminum. A pressure washer helps if you have one. Not a big deal.
