Yup. Gotta take time if you want a decent job.
As a hobbyist painter, I can prep/paint a tank in a couple hours at "race
quality" - but I have the right tools, materials, a real paint booth, and
some skills. For someone that wants to do it themselves, substitute
time/patience for a substantial tool investment. A few sheets of 220 and a
couple cans of the right Krylon primer/paint would provide a decent result
if you're careful.
On the other hand, you could pay a professional:
