you want a grade of wet and dry buddy, all your need to do is give the matt black somthing to key onto, maybe a scotch pad will do the job

As above. If you're having the bonnet painted matt black too, then you only need to key (roughen up) the existing lacquer to give the black something to adhere to.

Either 800 grit wet & dry, or a grey Scotchbrite pad, would do the job nicely.
