Okay, I finally decided to ask this question since I can not find it in any of the three books I have on how to paint your muscle car.
I have a 20 ounce container on my HVLP gun. I know how much I can paint using 20 ounces of paint and it's not a complete car body. Body excludes the trunk, hood, doors and fenders. I can probably get a coat of paint on everything else with 20 ounces but not the car body.
So here's my question. If I'm painting the base coat , what happens when I run out of paint and I'm 1/3 of the way through ? Do I prepare 2 other 20 ounce bottles of pre made paint so I can pour them directly into the cup, or do I have to make the paint up as I go and over spray the previous coat , which might need some buffing later to make uniform. This would also apply to the clear coat. I don't think a larger cup would be big enough to completely paint the body either. Nothing in the books about it.
Thanks for any help,
