hey guys I have a 98' EL Falcon with GY Galaxy Blue Metallic Colour Paint.

where can I source this paint? and how much of it would I need for a bonnet? I want 3 coats.

(Ive sanded down my bonnet to the bare metal, primed it with 3 coats and now want to paint it.)

cheers

If you have 3D Paints or Spectrum car paints in your state then they'd be good places to start.

You can buy 400 or 500 gram pressure packs which have a nozzle designed to imitate the performance of the gear that the pros use.

All you have to do is give your cars make / model and paint code and they'll make one up, usually takes them about 30 minutes to do and only costs $25-30.

I'm not sure how much paint it would take to spray a bonnet as I've never painted one.

"Auto barn" mix paint to match my car for me.. just give them your paint code.. mine is Breeze = "BR"

and can make 5ooml for $50 or 1L for $95

500ML should be plenty..
