There are a lot of paint jobs that might look good the first year or two, **** a maaco job looks good for a year or so too but after that it starts looking like garabge. Paint ships, flaking, loss of sheen. I don't think you're going to find any support on this one here.

well then i might just go to maaco, get a cheap paint job that'll look good for a year, then when i get enough money, get real paint job. it's either that or I'll just do it myself. Paint costs roughly $300, I can mess up 7 times before I'll even get close to hitting the price of what people want me to pay for a job, and I can learn a new skill so I won't have this problem again. (maybe even profit off of it if i can)

Make sure to have a proper booth. You'll be looking at a grand or so after paint and materials. Plus a quality gun and vapor separator
