I'm sure there's a tutorial on here somewhere, but you'll need to first sand it down using something like a 600 grade sandpaper, give it a good clean, and spray a couple of coats of plastic primer (with arden blue I'd suggest quite a light colour). Wait for it to dry, then sand it down using something like a 1200 wet and dry, give it a good clean again. Spray a couple of coats of paint. If you want, for an extra shiney, protected finish you can spray a couple of coats of laquer on top. Buff it with some polish and you're done.

Don't rush any part of the process though - take your time and if your not sure of anything ask for some help. Last thing you want is a crappy finish or your paint peeling within a week.

one should be enough, but if you find out that one isnt enough and have to get another one there's a chance that the shade'll be different so better get two just to be safe
