Default New Targa Top Paint advice

Hey I'm looking at replacing my fiberglass targa top with a metal one. My current one has a bad fade on one side. This one I'm looking at will need to be repainted to match the color of my ride. Is this a big deal or rather standard to get done and how much would this cost? Thanks in advance.

Why not just repaint your fiberglass top? Should be around $300 to paint it all up.

Thanks for the comments. Not sure which route I'm going to go yet. I'm waiting till I pay the car off before doing anymore mods.

That's a good idea, if you can put it off until then.

Yeah I've only had since this past August so it will be awesome and once paid off I'm going to do a lot of other work on it.
