Paint Quantity for Van??

Postby EYV1965 » Thu Aug 15, 2019 9:46 pm

Im wanting to spray my van, but im unsure of the quantity of paint needed.

How much for:

A, The whole exterior of the van and interior of the cab only
B, The engine bay
C, The inside of the van body only

Im wanting different colours, hence the A,B,C... not sure how much to order... Any help appreciated

down to what type,
2k
A 3lts =5
b 1lts = 1.5
c 1lts = 1.5

you get a deeper coverage/shine

cellulose
A 5lts = 10
B 1 =2
c 1=2

easier to touch up, any body can do it with patience,

Thanks,

I was thinking of coach enamel, or similar, I don't like the way cellulose goes after a couple of years. Would the quantities be the same with coach enamel as cellulose?

coach enamel takes a long time to dry, and runs very easy, not sure on quantities as only ever brushed it on,
