basf 90 line

My car is all painted and getting ready for sanding and buffing this weekend. However, I have a small problem. the headlights are not painted yet. I removed them from the car and sanded them real nice. I think they are perfect. I really do not want to pay someone to paint just these two headlight cans. Can I do it myself? The paint is a BASF 90 line gm color. If I can do it what steps do I need to make it happen. Primer, sealer, clear? This is new to me.

Hey bill, Thanks. I just talked to the dealer they can actually mix up a spray can of any color you need. Runs about $20. I guess that is the advantage of using factory colors instead of custom. So basically a can of primer, a can of color, and a can of clear all for $55, and i am done.
