I see. So I just need to get the scratches covered or removed, I assume.

I'm planning to do a flat black job from a rattle can, since I have a friend that did it with some rather nice results.

I would go with satin ball vs flat black. Satin seems to have less splotchy results.

Oh, I see! If there's a difference between the two, I believe he used satin black... it wasn't splotchy whatsoever.

I attacked the hood and trunk with 240 to work off some of the 150 and 80, then I'll hit it with 400.

Rust-oleum paint is about $9 a quart, that's what I'll end up using.

Thinking of getting a spray gun to do it...$60 at HD, and it'd maybe let me do the whole car instead of the middle panels.

Well, I'm not planning on keeping the car long enough to invest on a proper job, and if I was, then that job would come way down the line. ATM I'm just hoping to create a decent-looking car so that it'd be easier to sell if the time comes.
