'50 3100 pickup. I will be painting entire exterior. Backsides of panels will not be painted with exterior color. I plan on doing a BC/CC job. Will be spraying epoxy primer, high build 2k primer, bc, cc. (Plan on using middle of road paint and products, but will tend to move up on quality rather than down.) What is a safe quanity of the various products to be sure that I have enough, but not a lot left over. Thanks in advance.

Figure on about 5 quarts of each, possibly a little extra on the primer for a perfecty smooth base (you'll sand alot of it off). It took about that much to do my long bed '55.

I say 6 quarts of color to be safe. A little extra never hurts, and it is important to have it all mixed at the same time.

From first hand experience - 2 gallons of base, one gallon clear. There are so many smaller pieces that need special attention in addition to the larger panels. This will leave you with a little left over which is better than needing a little more to finish.
