preppinng painted parts for repaint???

have a tank and fender for a triumph 650 that i was asked to repaint.
the stuff is straight, the guy just doesnt like the color...
do i strip it and start from scratch or can i just knock it down with some 600, prime it, block it and shoot it??
any input would be greatly appreciated.

The rule of thumb is to re-coat only once.
So, if it has been re-coated already, strip it and start over.

If it is original paint or was stripped the last time it was painted, go ahead and sand like you say and re-coat it.
However, if you go this route why not just 600 sand, spray with a 2K sealer and shoot the color? If it is already straight it shouldn't be necessary to prime and block.

That would depend on what your painting it with and what the paint that your covering is. I would test an inconspicuous place first to see if there is a reaction.

If the present surface is tight like you say ... then sand/scuff and paint straight on there. . Factory paint is a great substrate... ... Mostly get it dulled down and real clean...

Im with Milo on this one,I would block sand it with 600,mabey even 400,depending on the color.Scuff it up,wipe it down with degreaser,and spray away.But,like I allways say.....Im sure someone will post and prove ho w wrong I am.

Why not be safe and seal it first with a single coat of epoxy? With the SPI epoxy you only need to let is set for 30 minutes before shooting the base.

On a spanking new tank it's also important to ge the cosmoline off.. Factory paint is our freind as far as tooth for new paint. Same rules as always... ... less steps the better.
