Just a thought since you're a do it your selfer - have you researched the $50. paint job? I've done a few of them over the years and if you're not looking for showroom quality, they really do a good job. Basically use mineral spirits to dilute the paint to make really thin coats that are self leveling and can be applied by a foam roller instead of a spray gun. A car takes 8-10 coats. It's some extra grunt work for a much less expensive paint job. But it's about $50 worth of supplies from Lowes or Home Depot and you've got a car that looks nearly new.
Is this something I could do without any shelter? That's my chief concern. I have nowhere to put her while in process.
I would want to sand off the old paint first... it's all sorts of splotchy and messed up.
I definitely don't need showroom perfect though. Just something that won't let rust through.
I have zero experience painting.
How long do you think it might take a first timer? From what I've already started reading... a few days at least.

looking through it
I may try it with the hood first.
