I found a mobile body/paint guy that will come to my house and do some light sanding, mask, and primer the whole car in black primer with a pro spray gun/compressor for $260.

Is that a good price?

I thought twice against using rattle cans cause the coverage issues... ;)

sounds like a sweet deal to me.. i mean hes doin everything youd have to do to paint the car.. just aint applying the color part of the process.. primer is gona cost him almost that much.. i say its a little to cheap..id jump on it.. if thats what your tryin to do

souds great, ask what type of primer he is shooting

you should probably ask him for a lower price if you supply your own primer, such as a
2K ($120 - $140). I find it hard to believe that he is using any 2 stage product for that price and still make a profit.
unless it fell out the back of a truck

Finding a hobo living IN A VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER would be better than maaco.

They shoot crap and do not care in any way about the job they do on your car. My clear coat is peeling off in places after only a few years.

Stick with the rattle cans as a backup.
