Question How much paint for a ms batwing?

How much paint do i need to paint a memphis shades batwing. I plan on using colorite in aresol cans. Will one can of primer, base, color, and clear be enough?

I would think that would be plenty.

I think it would be plenty as well. I highly recomend using spraymax 2k for clearcoat. It is a 2 part in a rattle can.

$25 give or take but worth every penny.

I wasn't too sure about 1 can of color would give me enough coats to get a good color match. I looked at the batwing today and it isn't very big. 1 can should do the trick. I'm only going to paint the outside anyway.

I will surely look into the spraymax 2k because I like the resistance to fuel.
Have you used spraymax over colorite? Is it compatible?

I have used it over colorite with no problems and the fuel resistance is worthy. I have tested that accidentally a few times now.
