How much money are you willing to spend and how much would it cost to have a body shop do it? Tell us this and we'll tell you what to do.

Default GO TO A BODY SHOP!!!

take it to a body shop and have them paint it for you and pay the little bit extra to have them blend the color into the door and hood (not requierd for black ,most whites and the gm color 519F (galaxy silver)) . I have seen far to many people make a nice car look like **** by trying to paint someting them self. get it done right!! yo uwill thank your self in the end.

If uīve never painted such things by yourself I think it will be better to bring it to the body shop. There are many items(primer Clear coat, colour, thinner, hardener,..) uīll need to result in a good job. I donīt know how much it will be in the USA cause here in Austria itīwonīt be so cheap. So when then happens something wrong and the result isnīt that what u wanna have, it will be more expensive to mend.
