dp-90 over paint?

i am almost ready to paint the sheet metal for my 91 heritage softail, which i have done some minor metalwork on such as filling holes which were used for trim and such. Pinstripes and of course about half of the original paint has been sanded off. There are also a couple of small chips in the original paint which will need to be filled. I want a flat black finish so I'm researching my options and have discoverd dp-90 seems like a pretty good choice. I am on a limited budget seeing as how my new wife is pregnant! So I dont want to push my luck since she hasnt given me any **** about keeping the scooter. anyway, so i sandblast to bare metal? Fill my chips, sand and then apply the dp? how do i prep or would it be a better bet to go with bc/cc with flattening agent? sorry this is so long! thanks.

You could sand to bare metal (lotsa work), or you could just scuff it up, apply a high build primer. Sand and reprime until all the nicks are gone. Your best finish is going to be BC/CC with a flattening agent.

thanks vince. so it is not ok to apply dp over existing paint and only onto bare metal? i was also thinking, if this is the case, sandblasting the existing paint would be an alternative.

Yes, you can apply DP over paint, if the surface is prepped per the spec sheet.

Just scuff it and apply a paint sealer.I use an R&M product.Spray it and wait about an hour or so and apply the DP90.This way there will be no problems that can occur.
