Its just a beater high school car. I wouldn't bother painting it. You'll be putting money into a car that your never see again. However if I did, I definitely wouldn't change colors. For that price they don't spray the door jambs or under the hood.
My father had a car painted at our local vocational school. It came out great. They have a great auto body program with knowledgeable and talented teachers.
Got any pics of this car? I might consider spraying just the bumper and hood.
