    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.
