Default Cheap racecar paintjob?

I need a Maaco style el cheapo paintjob for the racecar, how much should I expect to spend realistically? Where do the cab drivers get their junk painted?

Got to tractor supply, get a gallon of the tractor paint with hardner. Pick a reducer for the weather. Stop by harbor freight and get the "purple gun" and shoot it yourself.
