You will be much happier having a body shop paint your car. You can take the car to Maaco and have it painted for a few hundred dollars. If you were to do it yourself here is a list of things that you need to do to get a passable job.

1. Find a place to do the work.
2. Wash the car.
3. All windows, chrome and everything not to be painted must be masked with tape and masking paper.
4. Any dents and other imperfections filled in with body filler.

11. Because the type of paints used on cars today a very good paint mask must be used to protect your health.

I suppose you could use aerosols paint cans but the results will be lousey.
