Hey homie do you have any tools or air compressors or anything? DO you have any experience? If both of these are no you are not gonna be able to paint your car. The 1st time painting cars shit always goes wrong. The cost of tools and everything might be a little more expensive then just running down to maaco and letting them slap it on. Paint always adds up. Primers, clearcoats, mid tones, maybe some flattening agent, base coat, and maybe some flake. Shit adds up homie. If you do decide to paint your own shit try and get at least a five hoursepower compressor. Harbor freight paint guns and body tools are, what I think the cheapest on the market and hold up the longest. Sup 2 U good luck, Chris
