Painting daughters 280xz-need advice

Daughter is restoring a 79 280zx and I'm trying to save her as much cash as possible. The paint has to be budget but right.
How much paint will she need for BC CC? Will be painting exterior only.
Would Kembase be a good choice?

You could also look into the Restoration Shop line sold on the web by TCP Global. Here is their color chart. Just click on a color to get price and order info.

BTW, their "kits" come with Kustom Shop clear. The kit includes a gal of base, gal of reducer, gal of clear and a quart of hardener. The package is $240.

I used it to paint my sedan delivery...which was the first BC/CC I had ever done. I did shoot pretty much EVERYTHING on the car, inside and out, so I used two complete kits plus another partial gal of clear. So my total materials cost was around $600 (not including primer and prep cost).

Summit has very good paint. i used a single stage with clear coat on mine. it has excellent hiding property and sprays easily. i paid about 200 for their kit which came with 1 gallon paint,1 gallon med solids clear and hardener/reducer.
i did 2 coats of color, 3 of clean. i have about a quart of color left and half gallon of clear

Heh, probably because the builder was off his meds.

Just wanted to add to my earlier post that an even better choice might be to use a Restoration Shop (or Summit type) base and then a Southern Polyurethane (SPI) clear. It would cost you a few dollars more because you don't get the "kit" discount, but I've heard that SPI clear is the absolute best bang for the buck on the market. I know that is what I'LL be doing for my next shoot.
