I have some small key length primer deep scratches on both sides of my fenders and rear bumper. I already have primer, duplicolor matching spray paint, 400 grit dry/wet sandpaper, and duplicolor clearcoat. What else do i need and what are the steps?

As xnick already said, a professional is the way to go for paint. I've used touch up paint on minor scratches, but I would never deal with a major scratch on my own. Got any pictures of what you are trying to fix?

Hate to say it, but paint should always be left to the pros, and even they still f**** up sometimes. You can do it yourself and be dissapointed afterwards, or you can pay more and bitch them out if it looks like crap. Laughing
