Default Painting wheel flares - where & cost

I have a new 2011 RAM 1500. I would like to add the OEM fender flares. I found a video showing the install and that looks fairly easy.

The truck is white so I'm guessing I would paint to match. The parts site states "Mineral Grey with a medium grained textured finish (can be painted)...". Sounds as if the flares need to be sanded before painting.

Anyone had these painted? Where was this done? Just your corner body shop? And what was the cost to do this. Seems like a pretty small job where set-up costs would dominate.

I also want to add the heavy duty splash guards. They sell two types, for trucks with or without fender flares. Has anyone installed the splash guards along with fender flares? If so, is the installation order important?

I went with a set of Bushwackers after looking at the ones from Dodge/Mopar
mostly because the Mopar flares that they could order were for Rams with a metal bumper, mine has the plastic front bumper
I put the original mudflaps back on over the flares, the molded ones were not out yet when i did mine & i don't think you can use molded flaps with flares
On the '11 you may find a plastic piece on the bottom of the sheet metal at the back of each tire, i believe they have to be removed, but, i'm not sure

I also have plastic wheel well covers front & rear, makes it easy to clean under there
