it should be ok just make sure to wet sand the whole car or else the paint wont stick to the car. it takes some time but it will save u a lot of timeand fustration in the future. please let this only be a temporary thing

no no no no no what the hell are you thinking?? dude if you're gonna get it painted in the summer why would you spray on extra coats now? it's just gonna cost extra money for them to sand all that spray paint off later. They'll have to sand ALL of it off or else your new paint will lift. so dont even think about spray painting your car, it's gonna look hideous and cheap and awful, just stick it out till summer
