How much paint depends on what kind of job do you want to do, and the amount of money you want to spend.
You can chose cheap material or very good material.
You can chose how many coats of paint you wish to apply, which dictates the life expectancy.
We, in our shop, use the following spray painting routine when painting an Argosy or Airstream.
We apply 2 double wet coats of Epoxy primer.
We then apply 3 double wet coats of a special mix silver.
Lastly, we apply 3 double wet coats of clear.
All tolled, you then have 8 double wet coats of paint.
The beginning of the job, is that the shell must be sanded (not scuffed) with 120 to 150 grit sandpaper. If anything less, the primer will not properly bond.
DO NOT under any circumstances,
apply any form of acid to the shell.
