For starters, you don't need any books, they will only confuse you. Ask here. There are plenty of us here who are pros and can answer any questions you might have. Without seeing the car, it's hard to tell you where or how to start. We need more information. If your car has the original paint job, and it isn't in bad shape, then great, your job will be fairly easy. However, if it's had a couple paint jobs already applied over the OEM paint, I would strongly recommend stripping it. Send us some pictures. Close up of the worst area would be prefered.
