You have asked an impossible question to answer...!!!

What level of finish do you demand, etc..

Painted with High Quality "Rattle Cans" can be quite Good and the finish will DEPEND on how well YOU make it...

I suggest getting it ready, primer it, wet-sand it back until it looks "good", they Wet-Sand that finish off with 600 Paper...

You will know when the surface is "Ready"...

This way, maybe 150-200 dollars..

With farming it out to someone else..probably 800-1400 DOLLARS..(Get it???)..

DO it yourself...just get used to Painting.waste a couple cheap cans on a piece of Junk..BUT..get the GOOD High-Quality Persian Orange from a
may be Pricey, but it is what you WANT (if you want a great finish with Rattle-cans)..

Take your pick..I have seen tractors come out of a paint shop with paint so thin, you could SEE Through it (and that cost 1,300 for the paint job...

I have a JD "B" hear that I painted with Rattle Cans and it looks like it war "Clear-Coated"..and it had N O paint left on it when I started...

you have to decide on the quality finish you want or expect. Do you want the hood / muffler/ floor plate / generator / starter off ? Are you going to pressure wash and start painting, or do you want it sanded down for automotive quality paint finish ? It can take someone 30 hours and $30. hour for sanding and prep.. you could spend $900. just to get it READY to paint.. You could pressure wash it and lightly sand the hood and gas tank and then have someone spray it with auto paint, or they could use $30. gallon tractor paint from the farm store........ or you could use 20 cans of rattle gun paint...... the final finish is 60% PREP and 40% type of paint used.
