Re: Painting the beast
Prep prep prep! Preparation is the most important step. If you have done it in the past it will be easier but just how many dents are in the body? Are they minor dings or will this become a Bondo buggy?
On the equipment side some rent-all-stores will have what you need. Check around flea markets, craig's list etc... to find the gun and other needed parts. Don't skimp on quality paint.
Oh, and if you are doing this in your garage get ready to pre-clean the area like you never have before. Making a home made spray booth isn't hard but if it's not completely dustless you'll see it in the finish.
There are web sites dedicated to home based painting. here's a few:
