How many quats?

Post by LV2DRFT on November 28th 2011, 12:35 am

Going to paint a jeep wrangler. Any idea of how many quarts I'll need to buy? I'm asking ahead of time because I will be mixing my own colors and need to order it online. I was thinking two quarts total of interlx brightside would be sufficient for the 6-8 light coats I've heard I will be needing to apply. Sound right or how many quarts have you used to completely paint a small car from your experience?

Thanks in advance!

That "should" be enough. I painted a 3/4 ton ford extended cab truck with a gallon (before reducing) and had about a quart left over and that truck was a lot bigger than your jeep.
