Respraying a 16V Grill

I have an 86 Euro 16V and the grill was painted black before it was brought over (in the factory). The problem with this is 200, 000 miles later it has become very pitted. I want to have it resprayed black, but the grill does not look very difficult to remove and i could easily strip the remaining scattered paint off of it. I recently asked a body shop what it would cost to have them respray the grill (black metallic) if i took it off myself and stripped it. They said $125. Is that a little much for a 30 minute sprayjob? And is it possible to purchase a kit or just the proper paint color to do this myself? Thanks
