Looking for help and opinions on painting a carbon fiber frame. I have an FM015-ISP from DengFu with 3K weave and stock clear coat. It's been a while since I've painted a frame and back then it was steel. So, I'm looking for help in deciding which paints to use, how much to sand the frame before painting and whether I need a special UV protection clear coat.

Just the other day I was checking out a thread where some guy did a great DIY paint job on his Trek. The important part is spending LOTS of time prepping and sanding, and never rushing. You should have a look:
