I painted my 99 tank by just scuffing it good with red scotch brite pad, then washing with dawn dish soap and letting it air dry. 3 coats of Rustoleum Universal Satin Black and it's held up great for the past year. Even some fuel spills haven't harmed it. My tank stickers were seriously melted into the tank - they weren't coming off period. So I scuffed and painted over them. from more than 3 feet away you can't tell.
