How to paint a moped

Painting with an aerosol can is the most common way to change the color of your moped or scooter yourself.

The cost of costs is equal to the cost of the cans themselves, and the lack of the need to prepare paint for the atomizer greatly simplifies the matter.

  • - 7-10 cans with an enamel of the right color with a volume of 500 ml-
  • - 4-5 cans with varnish-
  • - sandpaper of different degree of abrasiveness.



Prepare the moped for painting. To do this, remove all plastic linings that you plan to paint. If you plan to change the color of other parts of the moped (discs, muffler, air filter) - remove them too. Thoroughly clean all parts from both sides of dirt and dust.


Sandpaper all removed parts. Facings with large scratches, first grind the coarse-grained nazhdachkoy, then the smaller, and in conclusion - nulevkoy. If there are no scratches, treat immediately the most fine-grained. Warning: on unpainted before painting, the paint quickly cracks and falls off. After grinding, clean all parts thoroughly from pieces of sandpaper and dust.


For painting, use medium price enamelRange. Buy the enamel with a stock: if it is not enough, you will not need to look for the same. Varnish can be used cheaper. As a work site, choose a well-ventilated room or a deserted place in the open air.


Prepare a soft damp cloth for wipingStains of paint. Read the instructions on the can with enamel. Before the start, shake the aerosol container intensively for 3-4 minutes. With insufficient experience of painting work, practice in painting on some foreign object. In advance, moisten under or earth in the place of staining to nail dust.


Staining should be carried out from a distance of 30-40 cm fromThe surface to be treated. Apply at least 2 coats of paint with a gap of 10-20 minutes between them. When there are stains, immediately remove them with a prepared rag. Large parts paint, moving the can along the surface at a uniform speed. For small details, apply the paint in a circular motion with a twisting spiral.


Lacquer similarly afterComplete drying of the paint for 50-60 minutes. When using a good lacquer, do not spray the product too close to the surface to avoid streaks and cracks. Cheap varnish, on the contrary, applied at close range. Spread the varnish in several layers.


The smallest sandpaper remove the blemishes paint. Thoroughly dry all parts within 24 hours and install on the moped.
