X 1 million the prep......If you're woried about price, then get yourself some rattle cans and go to town, otherwise be prepared to shell out some $'s because materials are through the roof. The paint "systems" now a days are exactly that.....systems. Gone are the days where you layed down "primer" and then shot some enamel over it. Each manufacturer has their own compatible set of chemicals and, for the most part, they give you a killer end product. Follow the instructions per-vadem and you'll be quite pleased with the results......don't forget that color sanding, buffing and swirl polish removing are part and parcel of a show quality paint job. Hope that helps.
