Painting a body kit

I have a question about the paint job.
How hard is it?
Is it do-it-yourself kind of work?
I have a bumper need to be primed and painted.
How much a body shop normally charge for an average paint job?
Thanks for the inputs

Let a shop do it man. It will look like ass if you paint it yourself,unless you have auto-body painting experiance and equipment

In parkour, no one is afraid. One is just...apprehensive.

it's definately not diy, unless you've got the tools to do it (it takes more than an aerosal can and a brush). A body shop will normally charge 500-700 for a full body kit, depending on size and type (obviously a lip kit would be less then f/r bumpers).

i did mine myself, granted i had access to a paint booth and all necessary tools and materials, but it's definately not something you want to try if you don't know what you're doing. lots of money involved that can be wasted.
