Or Anodize at Home

I would LOVE to see a photo of your levers!!

I also agree that the aluminum needs to be prepped with "etching primer" before painting. Since levers are a fairly high-wear item, paint won't stick around too well without this additional pre-painting step.
The other altrernative is to remove the current coating, polish, then anodize them yourself with a home kit. Makes sense if you have other parts to anodize, or even better, if you have friends who are in need and will pay for your service.
