I am resotring a 1996 harley softail and have a question about the best way to paint over a powdercoated frame. The powdercoat is dull and has many scratches in it however rust does not seem to be a problem.
I want to restore the look to a gloss finish that has as much protection as possible from a non-powdercoated finish.
I am not sure what steps are needed but this is my thought process so far.
Scuff with scotchpad
clean / degrease /clean again degrease again
prime with something that could fill the scratches (they are not deep gouges) ?etching primer?
clean degrease clean …
paint with high gloss or satin ?chassis paint?
I was wondering if someone could let me know if what I want to do is the best way and also recommend some products
