I need to paint stuff to look like aluminum. Very small parts.

What's the current best looking aluminum paint?

Please don't say Alclad.

Gone but not forgotten.
If you don't want to airbrush, I would suggest Testors Model Master buffable Metalizers. You can get them in a regular spray can and work very well. They are lacquer based so make sure what ever will be underneath it is compatable.

Tamiya 85030 TS-30 silver leaf lacquer in a spray can is a good match for aluminum. I've been using it in on styrene in conjunction with aluminum tubing and it's a dead ringer for the metal.
