How much paint do I need?
 
I just found out they sell stone white paint in a spraycan :D

can someone give me a guess on how many spray cans i will need for mirrors, headlights, and foglights?

btw they are only 5oz spray cans.

thanks!

try automotivetouchup.com and get a big can of your color, along with primer, adhesion promoter, and clear coat.

its a must if painting plastic. it can be found a decent auto parts store too. you dont need to buy it all from that site.

I have bought about 6 cans of my gray metallic and they match it well.

If you dont use adhesion promoter on plastic parts before painting it will crack, fish eye or scratch off easily.

What if you were painting with Krylon Fusion, would you need to use adhesion promoter? Ive used Krylon on plastic before and had great results, but just wanted to know if this would make the results even better.

i honestly dont know. i can say i have seen what you are talking about but i really dont know. for this job, he's using automotive paint, so adhesion promoter for plastic and etching primer for raw metal. ALWAYS.
