I wouldn't recommend painting your old spar. In a few years, maybe less, it's going to look like crap again. Actually probably worse than it does now. You may want to apply a wax or something to it while it's down but sanding will remove whatever anodizing you have left and while removing the corrosion may seem like a good idea, it's not. the corrosion is actually helping to protect the spar.
