Then to tell you the truth, your better off having some one paint it for you. If you've never painted a car before, its not the easiest thing in the world and in my opinion, its something that is an acquired skill.
Cut or uncut signifies with automotive paint that you spray out of a HVLP (high volume low pressure) gun. it means if its been reduced to a thin enough amount to spray.
