cocker painting/airbrushing project

So, I'm hoping this is the right place for this. I want to paint/airbrush my cocker. Do I need to remove the old paint first? How? What type of paint and clearcoat do i need to use? Thanks for the advice

If your house was on fire and the first thing you would grab is your gearbag put this in your sig

If you've ever run into a screen door, put this in your sig.

Its most likely anodized. Roughing it up with sandpaper should be enough.

Use look for whatever paint has the most staying power. Duracoat would be good.

Read the label. Your looking for something that is expressly labeled as for use in high stress applications. If your not sure, look into duracoat, as it has a solid reputation.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably end up using duracoat.

practice on things other then the gun your using. Then shoot paintballs at it and scrape rocks across it. See how it holds up, if it can out last you shooting and cleaning paint and rugged terrain, you found your winnar!.

I like Rustolium, but it doesn't leave a nice, smooth finish on the gun (perfect for Tippmann painting as it makes it look milsim...). Duracoat is good, as it won't scratch easily or wear off. As was mentioned, practice a lot on other things before you paint your Cocker.

Enamel works decent on plastics but for metal either A(Durocoat), B(Annodized) or C(Powdercoated)
