Hi guys!
Following on from a knock the other night, I'm looking into getting the main side panel sprayed. I wondered how much paint and base I'd need to get for that? I can get some one to do the job but he's not familiar with bike colour codes. I know I can get the 19A red and suitable silver base, but don't know how much I'd need. Anyone got a bit of experience on this?
Ta!

-Colm

I used two cans on Emeralds bike - that was the nosecone, front mudguard and two rear panels ( but the rear panels only had a couple of coatsbut I was asked to do them as the fading was so bad they were almost white in places)

---------
1/2 litre at the most of each + thinners and that will leave you with spare for touchups. assuming your not using spray cans that is. a complete bike is about a litre for 3 coats but you cant buy it smaller than 1/2 litre im afriad (or atleast i've never seen it sold in less)
