About how much paint do I need to take off the marker? Do I need to sand it down completely bare? What would be a quicker way to get this done? I'm using 100 grit sand paper on the original paint just with my own two hands it's taking forever. I'm completely new to this. Frankly A little scared too seeing I don't want to screw it up to the point I can't redo it.
If you can't hack it, then I suggest you pack it!

I thought the trracer was just black anno. In which case you can sand forever and not remove it.

If it's powder coated though... I had a neighbor that had a motorcycle and used gasket remover to strip powder coated parts for repainting.

It is black anno. You can remove it though. It took me about 2 hours to remove almost all of it off the barrel. I'm gunna try out for the most beautiful marker contest. I started on the body last night. Still have more sanding to do. It is more of a pain in the ass then previously thought.

Don't bother removing all the anno, that's not necessary for a good paint finish. A decent scuff w/ 120 then a couple base coats of primer sanded w/ 220 prior to final paint color(s) would be fine over an anno finish.

Oh I probably should of asked before I started stripping the anno off. Is there anything that will make the color coat even more glossy. I'm going for a gold color. Or do I just need to find a real fine sand paper?

Gloss can be achieved just w/ the use of "glossy" paint. Smooth is achieved thru fine sanding. The parts themselves need to be sanded to at least 220 prior to primer, get your base coats of primer to a smooth finish then lay on the final coats of gloss color. To do it right you need to step up the sanding gradually, i.e. don't sand w/ a 100 grit then jump to 600 & expect a nice smooth finish. I would lay on a couple coats of primer then lightly sand it starting w/ 400, 500 (if you can get it), then 600... if you're really serious then finish w/ 800/1000 (whatever your autoparts store has) - that should more than suffice for a smooth enough finish. Once you throw that gloss paint on you'll know right away if you did a good enough job sanding.

After all is said and done, would it be wise to spray on a clear coat to protect it? Last thing I want to for it to flake off.

I had a bad experience w/ clearcoat because I didn't follow the instructions quite right... I got impatient.

Just be sure to let the clearcoat setup long enough between coats & after before using - adhere to the instructions of whichever manufacturer you use.
