It really depends what brand you buy. It could be anywhere from $75 to probably close to $500 depending on what brand, and whether you will be spraying solvent-born or waterborn.

Better is a relative ideal... Depends on the painter and the equipment. Waterbourne is relatively new in most areas and in our area for instance, unavailable right now. I work with a paint/body wholesaler and none of our shops spray it. It is supposed to be better for the treehuggers agenda... But it's debatable.
As far as results, either/or in my opinion.
U spraying or a local shop? I am no painter but with a little advice and a borrowed booth I painter my tbird and got fantastic results. 350 bucks vs. 2500... Worthwhile

We are wholesalers to joggers, so the price only goes up by the time it gets in Your hands. AND we are in south GA, which is usually a little cheaper than other markets
