    Rustoleum makes a brass spray paint, I would suggest you put either a yellow or orange basecoat on it first, and then spray with the brass paint.

    Yes, you have to sand it some. It depends on the material it made of. As to how much you sand it. Once sanded, vacuum dust off,wipe down with tack cloth. Apply a primer with color in it . Let dry, come back with a spray paint, keep sprayer 8 to 12 inches from bed. To prevent runs.Spray lightly, allow to dry between coats. You can add a clear coat of polyurethane, to help protect it
