Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. Think of it this way, 1 quart of Deltron 2000 Base coat is reduced 1 to 1, giving you 2 sprayable quarts...Your HVLP gun's pot should not hold a sprayable quart, in all probability 3/4 quart maximum, giving you almost 3 full pots of paint. Again, I don't know your spraying techniques and that is a variable but, one pot full of paint should be almost enough to go over the entire car, I said almost. If (as I mentioned earlier) you get coverage on your sealed areas first and on your last coat give the front clip a full coat of base, do your blend into the quarters, you should have paint left over. If you want 1 and 1/2 quarts of base for insurance, that's OK, you should without a doubt have paint left over

Let me know how you make out.

Ray
