This weekend I turned my shed into a booth and flat blacked my vbb. Best 50 dollar bodywork and paint job I've ever done.

I love matte black on old Vespas.

Here's a fine example.

Waiting on parts from all over the states but I'll post an update. It was tremclad rattlecan paint. It took 4 and a half cans, although I'll probably finish the 5th can when I drop my fork to fit the fender. I'm really happy with how it's turned out and if I ever scratch it it's a joke to sand and paint. Whether it gets red rims is something I'll debate when I get tubeless rims for it... if they ever come out. The reason I painted is because there was a big dent on the left side of the legshield that I had to bang out.
