easy paint job info needed

Hi, I am new to this board, my husband reads it a lot but doesn't post. He has a 4x4 that is built up and I am wanting to make it look nice for him. It is 1982 Chevy truck with a 1990 frame and a lift. The body has three layers of paint. White, sparkly green and dull maroon. The maroon is peeling bad and showing the green. Amazingly the only cancer is under the driver's door, all fender wells are fine.

My goal on this truck is not a professional or show finish. I want to paint it flat black, and some camo strips on the rocker panels, a camo 4x4 decal on the back and do the back glass, seat covers etc to match.

My experience has been on trash trucks, both pickups and packers. I have never primered. Basically I clean them, tape them, and paint them with tractor paint so they are all the same color. I also paint all the containers. I can't do that with this truck because of all the layers of paint already on it and it is flaking bad.

How would be the easiest/cheapest way to strip, primer, and paint this truck?
His only request is to paint it flat black.

Thank you for your help.
