Default New Paint

I've had my 2000 Eclipse GT for almost 4 months now. Its black and as we all know that black starts to fade really quick. Recently it's starting to fade quicker and I need to find a place to get it painted. I don't want to spend over $700....any suggestions??

Well if you dont want to spend over 700, i suggest you get yourself a paint gun, some decent paint, and start practicing!

Then,why do i see all these paint jobs done in home garages,that come out clean?Experience,tools,etc?So,with all those,it can be down,without a down draft booth?I'm worried about contamination in the house of kolors paint.
