Hi Scatz,

I can see you're point about having it done professionaly as it is so easy to fluff the paint job with a spray can, patience is very important!
You could prob knock the spraying bill down allot if you did some of the prep work yourself and just got the colour put on professionaly.
If you can remove the bits you want sprayed, and prep them, sand them down and prime them, it should save you a bit as most of the cost of spraying is due to labour hours doing the prep.
All the sprayer has to do then is give the bits a light coat of primer followed by the top coat of colour. Obviously you won't have use of you car while the bits are off but you'll get a perfect finish on the paint and save yourself some money.
Currently in Mikey's garage:
1996 Mazda MX-3 V6, a 2002 1.2 8v Fiat Punto active (the Wife's!) and a 1998 Suzuki GN 125. Used to own a 2002 Laguna II Dynamique 1.8 16V (Now Sold yey!)
