Smile Painting

Hi guys . I'm planning on painting my car within the next week .
I've got the paint , compresser , the gun and even a large garage to do it in .
Do I need to primer the whole car? It has had primer on I but I've rubbed it back in places . It's stripped as far as I dare , some more sanding and filling over the next few days then that's it.
If any body wants to lend a hand with some wet and dry please feel free
Thanks
Jason

If you use Photobucket (you will need to create an account) upload the photo you want to share then there is a box to the side of the image marked IMG. You just click on that and then paste into the reply box on the thread - hey presto, image is created.

Probably needs lowering an inch or two to finish off the look.

Yeah, unless you spend 600 on a decent set of coilovers it is a harsh ride.
