air brushing prep?

I'm having someone air brush a design on my gas tank inside my trunk on my hot rod. Can I just use a scotch brite pad to prep the tank so she can air brush the design onto it? "House of color" is what was used to paint the car and it was done in 2006. Tangelo orange. And then just have someone spray clear coat back on it; same brand. I just don't want to risk getting into the basecoat.

Ok, I have no direct info here for you, I am not a custom painter so I am not sure here. I am more posting this to guide you to find what you need. First off, ask the person doing the air brush work, I have to assume she does this often and would know. Second, you would need to know the paint she is going to use and then with that info ask your paint store where the clear was bought at. It's either that or do a test panel, when you have something so lightly sprayed as air brush work I have to assume it is very easy to get "lifting" or wrinkling when the clear is applied over it. If it were scuffed with a gray (fine) scuff pad, ok sounds good. Or sanded with 2000 grit or something like that as if you were prepping it for clear period, just look at it like you are going to clear it, what would you need to do? Then the air brushing gets sprayed before you clear, that makes sense to me.

But ask the woman doing the air brushing first.

Brian

ditto on Wayne

I agree with Wayne.....she's getting paid.....she can handle it. However; just for the steps....and I am a definite rookie at this stuff. I practiced on cornhole boards for a long time before I ever attempted to do anything on a vehicle that mattered. This would be my steps.....Wipe it down with degreaser/wax remover....Either scuff up with a grey scotchbrite or wet sand with 800....Wipe it again.....tac rag it and it is ready for airbrush work. Attached is a Harley fairing I did.
