Is there a way to distinguish grammatically whether I am painting the car (i am putting colour on the car) or whether I am painting the car (i paint the car on paper)?

No, not really, unless you expand the sentence in some way. You can interpret this sentence either way.

I wonder if this could also be: We are painting A cheap car.

Yes, that works too.

Shouldn't it be "We are painting a cheap car"?
