Be prepared to spend a lot of time of you want a quality looking paint job. There are tons of painting guides out there, google for one. Some tips though, use tack cloth, and use it lots. Wipe w/ it between every single coat and wipe just before painting. Do a whole lot of coats, like 10+ of each primer and the paint and then clear coat if you are using it. You'll need to spend a lot of time wet sanding too if you want a nice finish clear of orange peel.

If you can afford it, maybe spend $75 - $100 on getting the interior powdercoated. It will look 11ty better and be very durable.
