As long as u do a good job on the sanding, priming, and wet sanding.. i did all my work myself and was gunna get my car painted and it was 400 bucks at a dealership(which is cheap as hell) but they can't have any warranty on how long the paint lasts or if it will look good or not

most places wont even touch a car if you did the work, because most of the time, they end up fixing most of the mistakes you made... and if you know enough about refinishing to do the proper prep work, you should know enough to paint it yourself.
