Unless you're prepared to be less than happy with the results, I would leave it to a professional.

A good paint job is 20% prep work, a great paint job is 80% prep work

Base coat paint repairs/respray can sometimes go pear-shaped after a few years. If it's solid colour then normally pretty bulletproof.

Get some polish, you can often polish off what looks like scratches, and if it's a solid colour then most automotive paint suppliers will make up 250ml of matched paint for around R100 or less, then take a fine artist's brush number 0 or 1 and carefully paint in the scratches, doing that makes a huge difference, from a distance it will almost look flawless.
