You can paint that car with a pint.....BUTTTTT youll need to get three coats of old base on there thats mixed close to the proper color then use the right color just for the color and metallics (two light coats) Of coarse thats if you have a bunch of left over paintat your shop..What color is that anyways??
You can also buy a qt of omini (30-40.00) to use for the first 2-3 coats and a pint of the good stuff if you dont have the left overs...I saved about 600.00 on the last all over I did this way...The price of paint is getting outragous..
