Hi everybody, I'm hoping somebody can offer me some insightabout a month ago my darling other half, in an attempt to assist me, painted the roof of my horse trailer with the silver seal aluminum covering.

I've given him a month to fix it, but it's program season and I require my trailer back! Can I simply paint over it? The thing only cost me 3 grand, it doesn't need to be beautiful, would just prefer for it to look a little much better than if does presently! Any recommendations would be excellent! Thanks in advance!!! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I do not know of a way to eliminate it.
