Ballpark on cost of repainting a trunk lid??

So, I decided to go wingless, so I bought a trunk lid. It's DG, and my car is Brilliant Silver. I was wondering what's a fair price I should be expecting on repainting the trunk lid? I just really need the top to be painted to match my car, not the whole thing. Or.... is this something I can do myself since the trunk is relatively small. Thanks!!

I work at a body shop and for something small like that would charge around $150-$200, I've repaired some pretty beat bumpers that needed alot of work for around that price. Oh it also really depends on the paint that your going to use, PPG, Dupont or House of Kolors=Money but if you take care of your car WAX+BUFF a inexspensive paint like Matrix System would last you a long time.
