it might look ok if you do it a matt colour, if you try doing it a gloss colour it will look CRAP- dont bother.
No matter how much money you spend on a car, you're not likely to ever make a return on it. Unless you were to fix it up to brand new condition and sell it on!
If you're keeping it, treat it to a proper job.
Save up for it, then!
Get a solid colour, no need for lacquer then. Get a cheapish compressor of ebay and a cheapish gun and thats things you can keep for later. full car in solid with activator (2 litre paint and 1 litre activator won't cost much. Just make sure you have a inside place to do it
It'll look nice from far if you use rattle cans thats about it really lol and when you come to sell it on... GOOD LUCK! you'll get all sorts of silly questions.
im looking at doing this respray and ive heard that if you take your time and with alot of patience and a good steady hand you can do i real nice look, if i remember correctly 65% prep time 25% paint and 10% after care. So with some time and patience it is possible.
I will post pick of mine when im done
If you prepare the surface well, you'll get a decent end result.
Practice on an old wing or something to get the hang of using the cans and how far you need to be from the panel to get an even finish.
Lots of thin coats rather than one or 2 heavy coats will dry better and reduce the chance of runs also.
I'd also say go for a matt finish, a light colour will also hide imperfections much better.
