I painted the car a couple of days later with three coats of Nason Ful-Thane single-stage urethane, again using our DeVilbiss Starting Line spray gun with a 1.4mm tip. The paint was a generic black mixed by Meza Autobody supply, also in Gardena, and was mixed 8:2:1 with 441-21 medium- temperature reducer and 483-15 activator. Though I used only a gallon of primer on the car, it took almost two full gallons of paint to cover it. Another reason to spray a test panel—you can gauge how much material it will take to complete the job.
