Sounds good to me except the axles ???
As for paint if it's a rough and ready job go for B'n'Q gloss and thin it and roller it
You can even spray it if you thin it enough !!!

How the quality of a diy paint can be checked? I am going to buy some and need assistance in that.

Any polyurethane paint is good. it covers really well, dries pretty quick and stands up to the knocks really well, i sprayed my lwb transit in 2 hours then drove it home an hour an a half later, no heat just the wind to dry it. two coats of just paint and its still shiny 6mths later.

I used to spray helicopter rotor blades with it so its tough stuff.
Acrylic paint would flake off and chip to easy.
Enamel is very brittle too.
