Prepping a whole car "correctly" (remove door handles, trim, rubber, door sills, wet sand, etc, etc, etc) is an enormous amount of work, especially for an amateur using only hand tools. The car is only 2 years old, 20K miles, and the rest of the paint is in beautiful factory condition. Also, I been quoted $600 just for the paint I'll need for the hood, fenders, and bumper cover.....I'd need to add at least another $600 to do the whole car.

Additionally, not being the best painter in the world, it just gives me more opportunity to screw up.

I realize that 3 stage paint is difficult for an amateur to apply well, I'm just looking for some guidance to help me along.
