Painting a Monkey Grip


I am purchasing an RG modified to look like a Jem. The body is pretty great, but the monkey grip doesn't have a clear coat. I know someone who could paint it for me, but they don't live locally. Would it be hard to paint myself? Any advice?

I've heard that sometimes auto shops will touch up paint on guitars, anyone have any luck with that?

Thank you.

yes, you can paint by yourself with car enamel, you need to overlay multiple layers
