undercoating question

got a cheap undercoat gun and a 24 ounce bottle of rubber seal undercoating w/ hardener. Anyone think that 24 ounce bottle will get wheel wells, fender bottoms AND trunk floor and back of the quarters? I'm thinking it will at least get the trunk area and one or two of the quarter wheel wells but that's it. Never sprayed this stuff so don't have a clue how far it will stretch or be gone. I hear it goes fast. Just want to get out there and prep the quarter wheel wells but would feel so stupid if I had extra and the fender backs are un prepped and not ready.

got the trunk area pretty good and the rear wheel houses. Not enough for the front. not so bad cause mid way painting the trunk I asked myself what the gas tank would look like in zero rust. So another bottle should be plenty for my fenders and apron and gas tank. didn't take a male fitting for my regular w/ gauge and I was really set at using it at 90 psi to see how it would spray. Put a regulator on it with no gauge. Seems to have sprayed really wet on areas of overlap and obviously when my little compressor bogged down. Those things are air hogs.

Rubberseal is nice stuff. I used a gallon and maybe a quart from another to do my short S-10 truck bed. Beats paying big $$$ for 3M Schutz...

I noticed it wasn't as dry as I would have liked but I think that's cause my compressor couldn't keep up. Wetter and glossier than I would have liked but at least I won't cut my fingers touching it. Pretty thick stuff to make up for my lazy prep back there.
