Best method to paint a HS stock?

I have a project gun that I have been working on for a while and the stock needs a fresh paint. Can anyone offer tips on how to prep and what kind of paint is best for these types of stocks? I just don't know how the Kevlar and fiberglass shell will take paint...surely don't want it to look worse but being uninformed.

Thanks in advance.

I've had good luck with DuraCoat. Check them out at DuraCoat Firearm Finishes

I have had real good luck with Brownells Alumna-Hide. I spray want ever color and then always use their clear over it. It's done a great job on all the H-S and other stocks I have done with it.
