It is up to you on what you are willing to spend on the project, if you want to buy some tools or do some of the prep it all depends. Preping the project will save you money in the long run. Will the shop warranty the work if they didnt do the prep is up to them. If you are willing to learn and give it a try, it will reward you in the end knowing you did the work.
Matthhepainter is giving you a good base to start off, up to you if you want to use it.
