Little tidbit to add. It's generally a bad idea to use paint stripper to remove the paint already on the case. First, because even the tiniest bit of resedue left over and your paint job is fubar. Second, because the manufacturer had to work pretty hard to get the paint to stay on the metal. You will be much better off just wet sanding the current paint job untill it's smooth. As for the plastic, it's your choice as to wehter or not you prime it. I've read both positive and negative for both. No matter which you choose to do, clean all the pieces, buy extra paint, wet sand, and take pictures if possible.

For metal case parts, use a good spray paint but for all you plastic parts (for optimal results) use a paint specifically formulated for use on plastics. "Model" paint is the paint of choice and should be available at most hobby shops not to mention Home Depot, etc
