Gm, and DuPont have been painting new cars with water baed paint for years. Some people may have some negatives to voice about GM's new car paint jobs.

i think you should paint it yourself. prep is the most imortant thing. you want to make sure you filler is not bubled anywhere. if it is grind it out and sart over. once you got that right, block it out with some 600 and lay a coat of grey primer. wait 10 min and lay another coat of primer. let it dry and wet sand it. lightly spray some black on it. block sand the flat spots. any low spots will still have black paint.

the seccond most important thing is a good gun. see if you can rent one from a pawnshop. those guys ussually know what guns are good and witch ones are crap.

after that i cant help you much. the actual laying of the paint is a ***** so dont be suprized if your first attempt is horrible. i say start slow and paint a piece of plywood first so you can get the gun adjusted and figure out how to lay a flat coat. less is more here. you want your coats to be thin and even.

Dont skimp on paint. i dont know what kind of paint they have there but ask around to find out what kind is best.
