How much paint?

Hey, looking to paint my 110 3 door & the nearest ppg guy is being a peker head (not a body shop sale) and would like to only purchase once without buying too much extra.
Not sure if roller brushing or buying a spray gun yet.
One gallon be enough or more, kinda expensive his asking price.

One gallon is more than enough for the exterior and door jams. Remember, you will add reducer and a hardener that extends the amount of paint. If you are also painting the interior, you will want more.

If you have a compressor, do yourself a big favor, and go the spray gun route. I just use the 15 buck harbor freight special, and it was really not hard to learn to use, with passable results. I'll never be a pro car painter, but when you wizz by me as I crawl down the road, it looks well painted
