How much prep do I have to do for this "minor" paint job

(Warning: year-old thread)

I've got one of these old CAAD8s.

I'm gunna make it all red, then put white stickers on it. I can't afford to get it done professionally, so, assuming I can match the colour, I'm just gunna paint over non-red bits with rattle cans from the local auto parts shops.

Do I just have to rough it up a bit on the areas, or is there more to it?
I'm not totally fussed if it doesn't turn out like a brand new bike,
