i know that there some threads bout this, but, what do i need to do this? What type of paint, where can i get it, etc. also, if i'm going for a flat color, do i need to clear coat it...i'm thinkin it will make it a glossy color. and, lastly, what do i need to do to get it prepped for paint...ie very light sanding...if so, what grit paper, then, what primer, and what paint...etc. thanks guys.
