Should I do the bodywork and paint my own car or pay this guy to do it?

i have a 1972 buick skylark coupe. currently there are some bubble under the paint near the rear quarter panel. scratches down to the metal on the roof. a large dent that has a hole on the edge by my rear left tire. numerous other chips and small dents along the cars sides and hood. the body still seems strong though.

i'm a poor college kid so i'm cutting costs everywhere. should i try to paint the car myself or get this illegal immigrant guy with experience to do it for me for like a grand?

what would be the best option for me to pursue?

i can rent a welder and air compressor with grinders and cutting tools and spray guns from home depot but i want to know if its even feesible to do it myself.
