DIY paintwork help :|

So I am not normally the hands on DIY person with cars but since getting a mortgage and starting a family money isn't as freely available to spend anymore. Me and the missus both share a 2011 blue Clio which has sadly accumulated a number of scratches, dents and marks around the body work over the years which is a shame as I think its a great little car that hasn't let us down yet.

I want to get the car looking as good as possible without paying to get it done professionally and would like to start doing work on the car myself.

I want to ask the paint experts on here the list of things I will need, any advice, the cheapest place to get the material/items and any useful videos and tips that will help me make the clio look more respectable again.

I know I will need the basic items, (primer, paint, metallic varnish, sand paper, filler) but will need to know wheres the best place to get these items and what else I am missing.

I have attached photos so you can see what I am going to have to deal with.

Cheers guys
