    When painting these should I use airplane stripper to get any clear coating off? OR can I just sand it, clean, prime, and spray? Thanks.

    If you dont go down to bare aluminum you wont even have to prime.

    Yea I just layed down a soft layer of primer, to fill any small scratches and such, I sanded it down with 320 grit, and I could tell I didnt need to prime it.. It looks good though, Im about to throw down the first coat of paint.
