Default Re: How much paint do I need to buy

For the clear I've found that some of the auto paint shops will do the clear on small items for really cheap since all they need to do is put it in the booth the next time they clear a vehicle, I've heard of others getting parts cleared for as low as $20 for a motorcycle tank... it never hurts to ask around and it'll be a lot better quality than any rattle can clear as well as being gasoline proof. Even that Finish1 brand clear they sell at Advance auto and a cheap Harbor Freight touch up gun can give impressive results if ya got a small compressor and a place to spray, I think last time I used that stuff it was like $25 for a quart of clear and $12 for the catalyst, and you can get a decent touch up gun from HF for under $20 if ya want to go that route
