Don't rush, and do the prep work right. Good wet sanding can be the difference between an okay finish and a great one.

There are several people on the NSM side that have painted their own scoots. You may want to do a search and ask over there.

If your using rattle cans and not a paint gun, air compressor, hardener in the clear coat, SEM offers rattle cans with hardener.

A good paint job is all in the prep. Think clean, bike, parts, gazebo/paint booth.
Paint on a warm day with no wind, wet the ground to prevent excessive dirt in paint.
You can colorsand and polish imperfections and excessive orange peel a couple days after painting with 2000 grit sand paper.

If you don't mind watching an amateur march his way through this process. I have a DIY with basic tools documentation going of the wins and fails. It's in the Projects section "Il Ratto 2022 Primavera 150 Project" I will be using an Acrylic Urethane single stage system and am learning as I go.
