derrick, i just got my moped painted. it didn't cost too much
but i did do all of the sanding and stripping myself. if you want to do a good job, first you sand with 200 wet/dry sand paper, (using water) then after go over it with a 400 wet/dry.you are going to want to prime it with a like color. after, put on your color. the most important thing that is put on is the clear coat which will allow the paint to resist two cycle gas. and the elements. this is not very easy to find, you might have to get it made by a body shoppe. also the primer should be a special metal anti-rust primer. if you have more questions email me.
