Tips? Not an expert, but
Patience is the key.
Make it more perfect than you want it to be, because there are always little things you missed and any shortcuts you hide with paint now will show up later.

All depends on how you prepare your surface, best to remove all paint and start anew. Use an automotive primer and a primer sealer for best finish . Knock down with scrunge pad wash soap water let dry. Paint in very light coats for best results, the first, second and third coats should be see through coats. Let 15 min dry time between coats if using rattle can. Try to paint when humidity is below 50 percent and temp is room.

Thorough prep work makes for a better paint job. You can NEVER do enough prep work

Oven cleaner from the dollar store works well. It does take paint off.

Self etching primer is a great choice on bare metal or aluminium. I know up here in Canada Rustoleum makes it in spray cans. I've had very good luck weigh it. The top coat seems to adhere well to it.

I have ppg paint codes I used on dads b-10, had the color matched right at the store with a very good paint chip from under the tractor. really came out good. as the others have said take your time and do allot of prep work, sandblast and clean if you can otherwise chemical paint remover is ok. make sure all the parts and warm and dry before you paint and that the temp wont get to cold, lots of light coats and sand between to make it even nicer. I primed then sanded then two coats of color just to get a base down then sanded and put a final coat of color. really stands out at the shows.
