In my city (Ottawa, Canada) I found an excellent body shop, I have seen many of his work. He does high end cars BMW, Mercedes, Porsche and wild custome paint jobs on rice burners. He charges about 6-7k for a job and if panels are rusted out or damaged, he does not use filler, he remakes the panels or replaces them to keep the car original.
2 primer coats, as soon as its dry, 2 silver coats to bring out the red, then 3-4 lighter coats or red to prevent streaks as he explained it and same with clear
I can find a 328 with red for the same price as black one but a Mondial for half the price, its worth having it painted. I was just worried if later the resale value would be nothing because it was not original.
