You don't always need to go from the ground up, if your primer and color are still good there is not always a need to lay them back down. The biggest things you will need is a booth if you have access. Then I would invest in a iwata. Depending on how much you will use it either a w400 or air gunza. Go visit your local body supply store and see what paint lines they carry. Also don't forget a plastic adhesion promoter
