I used one quart and brushed on two coats of the por-15 and had extra but, if you do not put a top-coat it will lose the high gloss and fade from the uv rays. It looks awesome when done right. It does'nt hurt to have extra around anyway.
Good luck,
Mario

I restore cars all the time. Just wire brush the frame, use rust converter, and paint with a factory finish. Here is a sample of my work with this method:

HEY 78: You could be a professional Por 15 man My suggestion would be to hang out your shingle and start part time and work your way into a full time shop. Here in Central Indiana there are a lot of guys who work part time out of their garage and build up a good reputation....GOOD LUCK...DAVE

Whether or not to use POR-15 depends on the level of the restoration you want to do. The level of restoration depends on what you want to do with the car, and what its restored value is.

I restore cars back to the factory finish. As such I do not use POR-15. If you properly prepare a panel, pan, and frame you will not need POR-15.

I am not telling you not to use POR-15, Its just that there are other options.
