That's not something I would do myself.You need a dust free environment.
Although I have had friends who coated their garage with plastic and added exhaust fans with filters to obtain the dust free environment.
But along with that they had proper cleaning solutions and tools for the prep work.
It's not an easy task to do yourself and come out looking good.
And can be expensive for all the supplies you will need.
In the long run You'll save $$$ by letting a pro do it.

You'll also need a decent sized air compressor, guns, prep tools and the rest of it. The key is in the prep as much as the paint work.

Best bet is to work with a body shop on how to do it. You can save money by removing the trim items and lights yourself and prepping the car for repair. Best bet. Pick a reputable shop and work with them.

Also depends on the results you want. Macco paints cars for 200 bucks. I have seen cars that came out of there with a not so bad job for this price.

If it's an old heap putting good paint work into it is good money after bad.
