Aluminum: To paint or not to paint

I have my windlass removed for another project and it is dissassembled for seal and bearing replacement. When I was in the yard they were testing a new method of blasting. I offered the casing up for a trial. The orginal paint was really ready to come off.

The question is---

Spend the time to paint it with an LP (Time consuming)
Have it powder coated (Will cost some money)
Leave it bare aluminum (Easiest)

Do I run any risks by leaving it bare for an extended period?

Thanks
Chris
