I did it my self in 3 days due to cure times on product . I really dont know what it would cost to do one film is only 15 bucks. I paint cars so i have access to all materials except film.i know you can buy the kit with everything to do one for around 60 bucks from diydipkits.com....but not sure of quality of paint. Alot of guys say its good stuff but ive never seen the stuff except on you tube....

Well the film comes in 7ft. X 20in. Wide dip wizard has it for 15 bucks includes shipping. The color probably like 5 ounces of basecoat but most likely a paint store will only sell a pint so that could get expensive. Around 50 bucks you may be able to go to a body shoo and talk them out of a few ounces of basecoat cheap. Then you need the matte clear again probably only 6 ounces but clear only comes in quarts .. its expensive econo clear 35 bucks with activator. Ive never used the kit ftom diydipkits.com but i do know there clear is a automotive type clear already flattned. They may sell small quanities. You need to order a 6 ounce can of activator for film thats cheap about 12a bucks. If you dont have acess to automotive finishes i would highly recomend diydipkits.com 60but bucks you get every thing you need to do a single rifle or 2 handguns..good luck
