I just recently bought a 1986 Aria pro II zz custom. It is a beautiful guitar that i plan on restoring.
The guy i bought it from said that it has a cheap black finish painted over the original factory pink/purple burst.
I would like to do a holoflash finish on the front, with a gloss black finish on the back and sides.
I would probably sand off the crappy black finish, and scuff up the factory finish and paint over that in a black finish.

HOWEVER, i dont know what type of paint to use as the basecoat before i iron on the holoflash film.
