House of Kolor offers an 8 hour course for like $25 that will teach you more than enough to do any DIY painting. Or just go to a local car painting supplier and ask for their advice, thats what I did. - Darrell

I'm not a professional painter or anything, but the correct primer and color code are most important. You can pay a crazy amount of money to get it painted, but what good is it, if it the wrong color? If that is the only part you need painted, maybe a local shop can do you a favor or give you a good deal.
