I'll second the SPI but you have to be kidding on the "how to". There's not enough space on this forum to explain or educate a person. You need to do a search function on what has already been discussed, google "how do I paint my car" on the enet, read EVERYTHING you can get your hands on about the subject. Then go to an automotive paint supply store and talk to them about your goals. As they say...it's not rocket science but you'll have to do a LOT of research on body work, the type of primer and paint to use, the proper spray gun equipment......it goes on and on.

Not to mention practice... That's what scrap is for by the way.

I did mine in a booth I built in the backyard. Agree with SPI for epoxy and clear!
Tip #1 is read and research
Sometimes pictures help so here are mine:

I lived on this forum for 6 months before I squeezed the trigger on the gun...

I took some paint and body night classes at a tech school before I ever even touched a gun.
