I have to agree with Dragon.... I think a gallon should be enough if you are using HVLP. There should be very little overspray or waste with that type of system. I have only used BC/CC one time. I used single stage numerous times in the past, and decided to go ahead and try the "new" stuff. I won't go back either. If only my wife was as forgiving as that stuff is....

A problem I have seen in the past is that people want to put heavy coats on and then clear. Like Dragon said, it will be more succeptable to chipping. The problem is with the thick paint, you end up with holes instead of chips. If you plan on using a clear coat, consider that BC/CC is done in light coats for a reason. The usual paint job of single stage is about the same thickness as the total of a BC/CC.
