Each kit covers roughly about 1250130 sq. ft. Ideal application would be 2 medium-wet coats. I would recommend 2 gallon kits for your application.

Does this come with clearcoat?

This is a basecoat kit that does not come with a clear coat. That would have to be purchased separately.

1973 chevelle, large car....will the 1 gallon paint the car?

Asked by: 1973woody
I'd recommend two kits, espcially if you are spraying jambs. This will ensure you have plenty of material, if you need to redo any or ever touch up spots.
