Well...

Realign your neck, take it to a guitar shop and have them perform a full set-up on it. Don't adjust your neck/truss rod yourself.

Paint, easy enough. Either:
  • Strip with chemicals, ie nitromorse
  • Completely sand the paint off
  • Scuff up the guitar's current paint with sand paper


Then paint with paint from spray cans, like from the nearest motor store. Get primer, then paint, then laquer, there's plenty of instructions for this in the "ultimate refinishing thread"

To clear rust, get some wirewool.

Fixing the fretboard cracks, we need pics of the cracks.
