New guy - all questions ahead!

Post by thechoochlyman on December 27th 2010, 11:55 pm

I'm intending to paint my black Dodge cummins, and I have A LOT of questions. So I thank you in advance for your patience! Smile

Do I need to completely sand down my truck as it is, or can I just sand out the rust spots and rough up the rest good enough for the paint to stick?
Primer - what kind, does it need thinning, how much should I use?
Paint - Brand, thinning, best color match to Chrysler black, implement paint?
Rollers - Argh... don't have a clue! lol
Any special treatment for fiberglass fenders?
Sanding tools - DA, grades of paper in between coats
Finally, will this create enough fumes that I shouldn't attempt it in my basement?

Here of some photos of my truck in case it helps:

Thanks everyone! I hate having to be the newbie all the time. lol!
