What paint should i choose for my project?

Hello all, I'm in need of some advice about different types of paint for my paint project. I'm repainting a yamaha jet-ski ans need to know whats the best brand of paints for fiberglass. I was thinking about Dupont nayson but ppg paint is what i can get locally. I have a sata nr 2000 spray gun with 1.7 and 1.3 tips. what type of prep needs to be done to fiberglass to get the old paint off? any help would be appreciated, thanks

Are you sure it has paint on it? I would think it would be gelcoat?

Epoxy, 2k if needed and then base and very HS clear like the 3000 series from www.southernpolyurethanes.com

I just restored a 1986 boat with all of the products from this company... It has been in the water every weekend since and is A OK.....
