(my $.02) I sprayed single stage for years and had such good luck I said I'd never change- then took my brother's advice and sprayed base/clear... I'll NEVER go back to single stage!! The gloss=INCREDIBLE!!! Easy to spray and any minor imperfections or runs are easily sanded and touched up before the clear. It is very forgiving, but a little hard to see the pearl or flake if you go metallic. Solid colors are a breeze!! Three stage was more difficult and I'll stick to two... Good luck guys! (If you're using HVLP a gallon would be way enough I'd think.)

Bluepen, if you want to clear don't put as many coats on as you're bound to get some 'chipping' as the mils will be too thick... (around edges like hood, doors ,etc. if it is too thick) Make sure your paints are compatible. It is easier to clear over base, but I have cleared other paints with success. (adtkart- know what ya mean!! -the wife could take some lessons!!) :)
