I want to repaint my commando frame after I strip it. What paint do you suggest. I want it black in color. I cannot afford powdercoating but I am a good painter. I refinish guitars mostly with nitrocellulose lacquer which is not suitable for metal. I am not looking for show quality but I want a nice durable gloss finish. Dupont centauri was suggested. Should I prime the frame first if I just leave the original finish and scuff it well?????? The finish on it is original black not in too bad of shape. Can I just sand out the bad spots and not strip it down to the metal before refinishing or do I have to strip it down to the metal??? Thanks for any help.
