How much to cover a frame?

I hopefully will be painting my Packard frame sometime soon. But I am trying to figure out how much paint I will need. I plan on using Por-15 ChassisCoat Black after sanding and blasting the frame. How much do you think it will take to do the complete frame and suspension? It is sold by the pint, quart, and gallon. I am thinking 2 quarts, maybe?

A buddy of mine just bought POR for his 41 Ford frame. The POR guy at the Nats booth told him about 2 quarts will do the whole thing plus all the suspension.

Two coats, the POR-15 then the finsh coat of chassis black. A two step procedure. 2 quarts of each will be plenty.

Trick: dont open the can by the lid. drill a hole about 1/4 way down, pour out what you need, then screw a sheet metal screw in the hole. When you need more, drill another hole further down. Keep the can air tight and you wont losse as much to hardening.

Oh yeah use cheap brushes and throw them away, you aint gonna clean them after POR 15 been on them.

So your saying I should put 2 coats of POR-15 Rust Preventive Paint, then 2 coats of the POR-15 ChassisCoat Black? I was rading the POR-15 site, and from what I understand, the ChassisCoat can be applied to raw metal. Is this not a good idea? Should the Rust Preventive be put on first then the ChassisCoat?
