And i call myself a varnisher .. too bad i lost interest in that work years ago and will probably never go back, plus the stuff i knew is almost forgotten..
My prediction is at least 10 liter/kilogramm or about 3 gallon of course depends on the paint itself too and we all know what to expect from cheap versions( don't know if that makes any sense to you ) ..
i did like trains busses with primer and finishing coat but these are pretty big.. i think we used like tons of paint but we had to do it by the books.. all these seperate layers and stuff..
if you just wanna cover it with one thin layer of paint and it should also protect it from rust.. if there is such combination and is sprayable then go for it.. and i would do a lil 60 to 120 grit sandpaper rubbing action on the spots if rusty and for the rest which is not rusty somewhere around 300 grit sand paper.. doing that will make your paint more lasting and durable.. very important cause you don't want your paint to peel off much sooner then it should..
Would love to hear somebody else explain it as i can't do it in english at all ( would also like to know if i was even close in helping out here )..
