How nice of a job do you want done? If you're on a budget it'd be a good learning experience doing it yourself or even ask at the local parts store (one that sells paint!) about any backyard painters. We deal with a few a work and they do good work for a great price! Not always perfect but you're definitely not paying most body shop prices!

they are easy to get parts for and most are pretty universal if it's an older model. I know some of the newer caps are becoming much more molded and fancy looking so they parts arent as interchangable.. I got my cap from the JY in my area for 38 bucks and besides the bright blue paint, I love it! replaced the lock/handle on the rear glass and both struts for around 120 bucks. Going to put new heavier duty screens in and paint it to match in my back yard. I only put it on in winter or when I go camping.
