Default FJ40 Fiberglass Cap Restoration

I'm about to dig into restoring my 40, I've put it off long enough. I'm curious if anyone has restored the cap to their 40? I know Matt did it a while ago but he said in the end he wasn't too excited with the results. I went to Calibre Boat Repair to get a quot on re gel-coating the roof, they said probably $1200. That seems high so I asked just about painting and they said $600. Does that seem like a fair price? Will paint hold up well? The PO on my 40 painted the top the wrong color and it's already faded/chipping. Any other places should I try? Should I knuckle up and do it myself? What say you?
