If you have a basic 20-30gal compressor, I would say find a NAPA paint shop and get hooked with paint from them, they'll mix it for you to color match your paint codes. Then pick up a $30-$30 sprayer from harbor freight. I got a HVLP gun and it worked great to spray my fiberglass tonneau cover. I laid down 3 coats of base and 2 clear. My first spray job and the base went down beautifully. I had a problem with the clear though. It is much more tricky to get the flow settings right imo. But if you're just wanting to shoot a single stage, it should be real easy.
I setup a paint booth of sorts in my garage by hanging plastic from the garage door rails.
