Need help cleaning up a paint job.

I've got a bmw I'm wanting to paint. The car was in a wreck where the fender was ripped off. The hood corner was slightly dented and will have to be filled a little.

Car is jet black....
The replacement fender is also factory black.
The trunk has a bubble in it from a previous paint job.
The door edge has chips in it
The door side has 1 chip in it
The hood in the corner will have to be matched in the corner right over the headlight.....the hood damage is at the corner over the headlight and is straight. The sheet metal was pushed down some but the lines are correct. I have a stud puller to get it almost perfect.

What is the best way to clean this paint job up? How much paint will be needed?
How much clear will be needed.
What brand should I go with. I'm trying to stay around $700 for paint and clear. I have all the materials already.

Will post pics if that helps but the description is pretty accurate
