I did this in about 2 day using my uncles boat shop. Sanded it down with 80 grit and worked my way up to 400. Bondo, bodyf filled all that crap, and then primered. Used a solvent to wash, and then scuffed it up with 320 and scotch bright pads and then painted, acrylic urethane with a 50 dolla hvlp gun and an twin tank 160 gallon compresser./ I got the gun from harbor frieght for 42 dollars. First time spraying a whole car!! there are a couple of runs that im going to have to be very careful taking out or the metalic pattern will look bad.
