    Equipment needed for removing decals off a carbon frame and recoat with clear MATTE?

    Hi guys. I purchased this frame off a friend a few weeks ago. Size 54, china carbon ($400) I hear the new big thing is
    powder coating frames. Others use
    HVLP, LVLP guns and a 5 gallon compressor purchased from harborfreight. I was hoping on re-coat with clear MATTE after removing the decals. I need help with choosing the type equipment needed for the job; where to buy, and why?

    Sandpaper
    Airgun
    paint brand
    clear matte brand
    mask
    decal removal
    compressor

    Let me know if i am missing something.

    Ty.

    Yeah, I'd make sure that feet don't contact the ground. Not exactly the same, but I have a Bikes at Work trailer for my bicycle. If I push off with my left foot, it's very easy to not stop the push-off in time and get my heel caught between the ground and the trailer hitch. This can be very painful especially when the trailer is loaded. Needless to say, there is no give. I'm willing to bet that a loaded quadricycle would be just as heavy and unforgiving.
