I know this might have been covered before but I cant seem to find where I had seen it.  Ive got an old Remington 870 Magnum with wooden stocks that have already been crudely painted once before, and I want to give this gun a fresh look, but not really interested in having it dipped.  I feel more than confident that I can paint it to my liking, but before I did, I had a few questions.

How should I prepare the surfaces so the paint will bond to the metal and wood?  Sandpaper, scotchbrite pad and alcohol?

Is rustoleum or kryloc spraypaint acceptable and for detail work with a brush, what kind of paint should I get?  exterior enamel ?

And after the paint job is complete what should I use if anything to seal or clear coat the gun with? 

If any of you guys have done a DIY paint job on one of your shotguns, would you mind sharing with me some of your tips, pointers, and things I should know before I get started.

Go over the painted areas with Scotchbrite make sure all of the grease ,oil and dust is off the gun.
H.S. Strut makes a gun and bow paint pick out the colors you want and you are set to go.
Give the gun a solid base coat of one color then add the leaves etc. in different colors. This paint is removeable also. Good luck it isn,t hard to do just take your time.
