Fuck me right?

The bodyshop guy called today told me he doesn't want to paint my car anymore and he will be returning the car tomorrow to me with no work done. I also get the benefit of paying for the return tow. I delivered the car to him in early November and he has had it since then. I now have to go around and find someone willing to paint it for less than $6,000 (where most of the other quotes were). I really don't want to take it to Maaco and get a shit quality job. I really have no idea what I'm going to do about bodywork and paint. I guess my new plan is to get the damn thing driving (needs an oil change, trans fluid, and a driveshaft) and drive it around without a bumper cover, hood, and fenders to bodyshops getting quotes. Eventually I need to get an exhaust put on as all I currently have installed are long tube headers. I also need to find an uncracked front windshield, install my new side windows, install my new radiator and electric fans, and re-install the interior. I'm just pissed beyond belief. Any suggestions on what the hell I'm suppose to do now?

Edit: Just a thought, what if I plastidipped the whole thing? Can I get a nice black plastidip job (one that doesn't have a bumpy texture)? I've not really looked into it, but plastidip looks like a decent "short term" solution. How long does it last?

Another edit: Anyone ever painted a car themselves? Is it hard to get good results? The only equipment I have is a 60gal air compressor.
