Need prepped and primered fairings painted cheap

I have an 02 GSXR salvage, I have all the 2 side fairings, the front fairing, the tank, the tail fairing, and the cowl. They are all filled, primed, flatted, and waiting for paint. Does anyone know someone that can do them for cheap? I just want one solid color, white is fine. I'm just tired of not being able to ride. The "friend" of mine that was supposed to paint them has left me waiting 2 months now.

for the record I've gotten a lot of PM's.. Like I said in the post one solid color, and cheap.
$600 is not cheap. There are plenty of shops I can drop my bike off at and have them mask everything and do a base/clear for $600.
This is all the parts off the bike and primered and ready to go, and me just wanting them all white so that I can put the bike back together.
I should have mentioned I already got on quote for $250. I think thats high considering the work involved. The paint itself is about $50 and it would take less than an hours work. I know what is involved. I'm not paying someone $550 for an hours work.

$250 isn't bad, beacuse you are looking at more than $50 in product, more like $150.
Sealer, paint, thinner, catalyst.. adds up.

, people may laugh at me, but there is no reason why you can't spray-bomb a bike. If you know how to use a paint can, it will work fine.

Paint isn't cheap unless you want to use Krylon.

The thing is... even if you think you have it prepped. The painter probably does not agree because he has to back up his work. I am sure he will want to sand it down some, prime it with what he likes, wet sand and degrease the surface before he even puts paint in the gun. Then you add up the cost of all materials and time.

I use only House of Kolor.
Paint, reducer, paint thinner, setup and cleanup time, clear, catalyst, more reducer, sanding the clear...

WAY more than an hour of work if you want quality.

If you want cheap, like they said ^ go get some spray cans.

Well Im not ready do to it, but I have some rash on a fairing and the front nose fairing, as if someone took a belt sander to a small section and just sanded it down flat. Does this sound like something you can fix, or jsut get new fairings.
Its a small section so thats why I dont wanna replace the whole thing.

Also I have some dents in my gas tank
