also to avoid oils from whatever, just wipe it down with some rubbing alcohol. I'm too impatient for the wash with warm soap and water stuff.

I tend to tear it all the way down...wash it in warm mild soap water (usually dawn dish detergent)...rinse well and then dry before I paint.
I know everyone recommends Krylon Fusion as your paint...but before you spray the vehicle...get used to the can. Spray a little on a piece of cardboard...you will be able to get a better judgement of how far away from the piece you are painting before you start.
I've had luck with the walmart brand paint on alot of vehicles. I just use a good sealer over them when dry...usually a Krylon matte finish sealer.

i would light sand the tank before any paint. then wash it or use some kind of alc.. high number in the hundreds, the lower you go the griitier it is. if you use 80 you will guage it. if you use something like 200 or 300 or higher that would be a smoother sanding. low number strips high number is for light sanding. just rember that for the furture. an if you want between the 1st an 2nd coats you can buff it if you want to. but make sure the paint cured first.. an when spraying, keep the can back like 12 inches an use a sweeping motion..

Have a look at my Spray Paint Basics Tutorial.
I don't use Krylon Fusion but I know that you need to re-coat within minutes, if you wait a day/week whatever you cannot re-apply it or it will destroy all previous coats.
It may also react badly to sealers.
Primer, paint, sealer.(or skip sealer and use Future floor polish)
Kylon Fusion - nothing else(before or after).
I wouldn't worry too much about sanding, just make sure what ever you spray first is on a VERY clean surface and VERY lightly applied(see Tut.)
Have fun !
