this is my first try at repairing paint

those two specs in that flat panel are paint chips. first picture
there is a layer of clear and black base that's chipped out. the under layer is clear and silver that was scuffed. its not into the primer. i have several spots like this. the door edges you see in the 4th picture and one of the gas tank filler door opening

the 2nd picture is bare metal and has to be re painted and primered. the metal was curved but was flattened and dented. i pulled it back out some with the stud puller. it will need filler. can i put filler here

the third is the plastic bumper. large spider cracks were sanded out.

the 5th picture is where there was a bubble in the clear. i sanded the bubble completely out.

i will be using epoxy primer for all of this.

i will also be repainting the whole car black unless advised otherwise. as of right now the paint has all been sanded with 800 taking out all original orange peel and will be scuffed with gray scotch bright and prep paste.

i have some ideas on how to fix all of this but i really need the correct answer and correct way to build all of this back to a solid base for re spray

how do you fix this.
