Alright, a while back, during the last olympics exactly, there was someone apparently up to know good at my house at 12:30 at night. When the spots were turned on the guys in this pickup truck fled. They tried to get by my car on a through road only big enough for one car. Needless to say they caused some damage. I have some pics of the damage.

Afterwards, I intended to fix it. I bought some dupli-color paint from the auto part store. I also sanded down the clear coat on the car and that is as far as I got. Now, since I have left it alone, road dust and dirt has gotten all over the places where i sanded. I would really love to fix it now, but I am afraid to mess it up. Can anyone give me a step by step on what I should do to get these 3 or 4 areas touched up?

In general you need to wash the area to be repaird then re-prep it.

I suggest you get the Haynes book on how-to do body work, they cover this kind of repair among many others. You'll find it at AutoZone, Amazon.com, Borders, Barnes & Noble.
