Can anyone give me some advice for where I should begin with painting my A-5?

I want to paint the plastic components (which should be a breeze) but I also have a glossy-finished expansion chamber and a nickel-plated A-5 main housing (which is already uber-cool).

Is there anything special that I need to do to these surfaces before I paint them, and what should be done if there is?

my gun more or less... i have a SAW stock, red dot, expansion chamber, flatline...

 

etrigger next week, with JCS trigger...

If you scuff the smoth components it will hold the paint better. But there is a faq for this subject.
