Look up some paint forums like and do some reading on the process. It's not hard but certain things MUST be learned to do a good job. I sell a DVD on how to do it but don't want to sound like I'm trying to sell it. I paint for a living, 25+ years at it now and can walk you through it.

Let me know if I can help you.
