Rep: 10 spectastic is on a distinguished road
Default doing my own body work

my car door has quite a few dents and marks on it due to douchebags in the neighborhood who keep opening their doors next to my car. Not only that, there are two chips on the car door that's getting worse by the week. Also, my co-worker bumped my car pulling out of the lot, and out came the air outlet. I never bothered putting it back in, but the plastic covering has a small crack. Lastly, there is quite a bit of rusting near the rear wheel, so I'm going to have to sand it off and paint it before it gets worse.

I want to do all this in a weekend. Are there any suggestions for a nice simple way to cover up the paint? I don't need to fix the dent, I just want to make the car look presentable with the least cost possible. But if there's a simple way to cover up the dent without too much extra work, I'll do it. I like this car, so I'd like to fix it up a little.

Touch up paint probably.
