A common question is, How Much Paint Will I Need To Paint My Car?
There is no real one size fits all answer because the type of paint you use, the size of the car and gun you use will all be contributing factors, that aside I have a general rule of thumb as I will list below.

Full Respray inside and out on mid-sized sedan: 4 litres of colour if 2:1 (6 litres mixed) and a 7.5-litre clear kit. This will generally leave you with some to spare but it’s always handy as you may need it in future.

My general rule of thumb for 2:1 solvent-based basecoat is listed below, again if the panels are extra large or small it may vary, also some reds, yellows, greens & coarse metallic colours may require a ground coat or just a bit more to achieve coverage. The basecoat estimates are before thinner.

Door: In & Out (300ml), Out Only (200ml)
Fender: 150ml
Bonnet/Hood: In & Out (550ml), Out Only (300ml)
Boot/Trunk Lid: In & Out (500ml), Out Only (280ml)
Roof: 300ml
Bumper Bar: 300ml
Quarter Panel: 200ml
