you wouldnt need more then a half a pint of color...pint of primer and pint of clear....as far as cost....if you do it approx 75-100 for all the materials....legally it should be done by a professionall.....but you can do it your self if you know how http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

you think it would be a good idea to use the cheap kind of spray can paint from an autostore?
probably not, right?

should be fine....its all in the prep work...try this....* assuming you goin to paint it say black*
get a grey scuff pad....some blue painters tape...a can of adhesion promotor...and some black spray paint *semi gloss/gloss/or flat...your choice* and some wax and grease remover....3M has something in a red spray can adhesion remover or something or other
tape off the surronding do you dont scratch your paint.... spray the wax/grease remover.....wipe it down with one towel then wipe dry with another....scuff with grey pad....*very well* blow off with air...spray wax/grease again...wipe it down with one and dry with another.....spray adhesion promoter....follow the recoat times or how long you have to wait to apply topcoat....when time is up spray your black...*or color of your choice*
untape....sit down with some ice-tea and enjoy your spiffy grill
