  3. Have a paint and body shop do it. You will have to get the gloss coats ruffed up. Most shops will do it cheap if you are willing to wait untill they use the color you want on something else, then they just mix more of it. Other wise you can always ago with a 3d finish like flexstone or something. Painting it yourself using aresol cans will take forever to get a good result. Good luck
