If you intend to do a good job... the tools will probably cost you more than getting it done professionally.

At minimum you need a dust-proof booth/room, sprayer, compressor, sanding (wet and dry) tools, primer paint and clearcoat.

Even with all that, I bet most people's first try turns out worse than the $299 Maaco job.
