I would:

1:sand it.. 800 grit or 1000, don't go too rough or you'll be able to see the scratches.
2: wipe it with alcohol or laquer thinner.
3: adhesive promoter
4: paint it then add clear :)

+1..dont use straight alcohol tho..mix it 90/10 with DI Water to prevent that stupid film alcohol makes. or use the wax on wax off method

just pick up a bottle of surface prep in the spray can isle... cheap and works damn good. I painted my grill and used it and it worked out awesome. no fish eyes, orange peel or anything stuck good.
