if the fork is carbon i would keep the carbon look...
if you felt the need to go the rattlecan route, you would need to strip the frame of its paint with a paint stripper like aircraft stripper. can be bought in hardware and auto stores. then when the paint is all off, you sand it down with a 600 grit sandpaper. then you would need an etching primer, which eats into the aluminum a bit so the primer stays on the frame. then many many many thin coats of an auto spray paint, sold in auto stores. THEN you would need to spray many thin coats of clearcoat.
but if you can get it powder coated for 50 bucks, that would probably be just as cheap and WAY less time consuming lol (probably better overall quality too)
