painting bumper guard

I had a buddy call me last night about a new tubular bumper guard that is a black simi-gloss powder coat finish that he wants to paint red to match his truck. Any suggestions on painting this thing to achieve the simi-gloss appearance? Any special prep needed for the powder coat before painting?

I would scuff it at least, maybe sand if needed. Then base coat with the red and clear coat with a satin finish clear. My 2 cents worths.
