If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, and if you don't know anybody with a body shop you are probably better off getting it powder coated, or anno'd. I usually paint my own . this is done on a raw body with the new anno look paint, the best part is it is heat resistant s oyou can put it in the oven.(body only i would be afraid the orings would melt on everything else) on about 200* for a couple of hours and cure it a little harder. If you don't do this I recommend hanging the body outside in the sun for a couple of days and DON"T MONKEY WITH IT UNTIL IT CURE it can be dry to the touch and still peel like a banana if you try to reassemble too soon. Due to the mechanical nature of the cocker type guns, with paint you are gonna get some wear around the pump arm back block area.
