The Dupli-Color type touch up paints in aerosol cans are just that.
While fine for spot repairs the paint just isn't suitable for a full paint job.
I know this from experience, believe me it does not hold up well out in the elements. Thankfully, I just sprayed a fender with it hoping to get by.
The cheapest you can probably do is to prep it yourself and have a paint shop spray it for you.
Or buy you a book on painting and see what all it entails and the equipment you will need.
If you feel comfortable with it and can afford the equipment then give it a go.
I have painted several vehicles over my lifetime at home, in my garage with minimal professional tools and most of them turned out pretty good.
Be advised though, body work, if you have much to do is hard work and it is time consuming.
