Im the same iv never sprayed anything but im going to give it a go on mine too. Whats the worse that happens? You mess it up, the sander comes back out and it goes to a pro lol all you lose is time and and cost of paint and primers. But if it works....

I say why not. my heads in the same place as yours. 

 

( plus I got a quote recently - £2200 ) really unsure if this is good or bad 

 

that's me dropping off a rolling shell with just primer on 

 

 cost for materials is gonna be about £500 - £600 So with that price difference. I reckon it's worth the risk.

would also love the fact that I could say I did it all.

Exactly that mate, may sound obnoxious but id be happy to gamble £600 for a half decent job just to say i did it and save myself £1500. I want to do as much as i can! And us sparkys are normally good learners haha prior to the mini i have now, id built loads of engines for cars iv had but never done body work. Got to learn some where eh?
