Post New to restoration, Need help on paint!!!!

I've been restoring a 56 Chevy 2Dr Ht.
have taken the body off. Just about through with the frame stuff. Would like to try my hand at painting. Thought I'd start with the firewall to learn how. That way if I screw it up strip it back down and keep practicing. Jack of all trades, master of NONE. I've bought DuPont Centari, Acrylic Enamel. Read lots of forums but never joined untill tonight. Does the store bought primer work OK? Also when I bought the car it had a garage paint job. Don't know what kind of paint is on it. Is it best to strip it all the way down to bare metal? Can I just scuff it up and paint right over it? Do I need to shoot primer on top of the existing paint? I know lots of questions but I bet you've all been there at one time or another. Any input appreciated.
