We have several cheapie places down here. I've had several beaters painted for $500 bucks just to sell. Now that 500 bucks got me a LOT of paint and not a lot of prep time.
Expect, painted chrome , scratched trim, and maybe a little run here and there.
It won't be perfect. It will have that .. 20 foot look though.
Try saving a little. You can get a " decent " paint job for about 1200.
As a reference I paid 3,500 for the paint job on my '66 Mustang.
