Well I asume that a bodyshop is gonna do the work,
Then they should prep the car (sand it) with fine grit paper
and of course remove all but all the mirrors fenders door handles ,belt moldings,C-pillar trim and inside door jam trim....ect.....save you some money if you do it, then prime it and sand one more time ...Last paint. 8)
but it could cost more money than if the original paint.

Be sure to read my doctoral thesis on getting a good paint job.

Just be aware that a complete color change is considerably more expensive because it takes a great deal of extra work but you should have whatever color makes you happy within your budget. Also consider whether your present interior color is complementary to the exterior you choose.
