My suggestion is - if you aren't a painter... don't attempt your first project on a vehicle.

The paint is expensive, the equipment is expensive, and if you mess it up it's worthless.

I've been painting professionally (ships) for a little over a year now and i wont attempt a vehicle.

There are plenty of "hood" paint and body shops out there that will do this for VERY cheap. Or find someone local (word of mouth) who is a painter for a larger shop, or a retired painter etc. Rent or rig a paint booth, buy the paint yourself, and have THEM spray the vehicle for you.

Another thing that cuts costs is doing the prep work yourself. Not necessarily the body work, but paint prep. If you want any panels removed, remove them. Tape the windows, trim, etc yourself.

nah i really dont want to paint the engine bay or jams bc im going with the same color. but i very well might have to find a painter and just do everything myself. my buddy does good with body work so ill prolly pay him to do all my body work and all that. but how much paint do u think it would take to paint my truck?
