best thing to do would be to consult a paint /body guy and then decide if you are up to a do it yourself paint job. with the cost of materials these days,as you could easily spend a grand on just paint,sometimes an earl shieb or a maaco job just makes sense. i have talked quite a few people through their first paint jobs and sometimes,it's a little more work than they signed up for. get some estimates of what a shop would charge, have an idea of the quality you want,and be realistic about your ability to pull it off by yourself. if you just want it blasted one color and don't want it super nice maybe talk to an auto paint store about a budget line of paint and some technical support. if you don't have a gun,believe it or not the husky spray guns from home depot or lowes actually work pretty good. good luck.
