I agree...also...what kind of car is it...a Vega will take a lot less Epoxy than a 59 Cadillac. Are you doing a complete restoration?...Door jams, engine compartment, inside of the trunk, dash, floor etc. What kind of equipment are you using...HVLP, siphon feed...what tip and air cap...what kind of compressor are you using?...What kind of overall shape is the car in?...How much experience do you have?...Do you have a brand of epoxy in mind?

These are all question that will help determine how much material you need.
