How hard is it to repaint a car? (83 240D)

I like working with my hands and with engines, but I'm told the hardest task to do is body work. I own a fading yellow 83 240D that I would very much like to paint white.
For some reason I want to do it myself. I rebuilt the engine on that car.
I've been warned, DONT TRY IT!
Is this possible for a methodical, careful, well motivated amateur?
I got a creative impulse in me that just wants to learn how to paint a car, but I would pray that my results would look very professional.
Is thsi possible? I do know lacquer at one time was easy because you could buff it. Alsoi dont have access to a paint booth.

Here are my credentials
