If painter has some skills, then 2.5 litres is enough. Same amount primer and lac.

Take it mate, i wonder if it's worth buying a litre 1st to check it's ok...Maybe they're trying to get rid of it as they have made some paints illegal now ??

i know about candy paint and you find that it will be dearer to get some one to paint for you  as the candy paint you can see every imperfection in it and if you do it wrong then you notice it .

you have to start at the bottom of the car with the kit on go from the front to back in 1 swoop then back to front and so on
you cant take panels off and do them individually as the candy wont match

sorry to put a downer on the candy paint
