i know theres alot of discussion about this.. and for some odd reason i couldn't find any old thread answering what i'm about to ask..

i want to black out an old racquet of mine that i don't use at all (a beaten up TT graphite).. however it is badly beaten that it's not funny.. and i want to black it out.. most of the thread that i've read explains for a paint strip before re-spraying..

my question is that if i didn't care about balance nor weight.. how could i paint over the top without stripping the original paint? and so that the re-spray doesn't peel/flake off?

i do have a precision approach tennis racquet that i bought from someone, and i'm sure that it was painted over, i'm confident because there's part that are cut-off and still have the original paint (ie the prince logo and the "precision approach" logo)..

any help would be appreciated

cover up what you dont want painted with some tape. spray a coat of primer on then a coat of black.

EDIT: Devilito also had a very good thread on painting a racquet, not sure if he used user name's thread.
