    I googled it and it say 3/4 of a gallon to paint a pickup truck,and if you mix it with thinners and other stuff that paint get mixed with it even more paint you get,so I think 1 gallon should be enough.

    well, you can't just mix in extra reducer to make more spray-able material.. Hotrod Flatz is a 4:1 ratio ( 4 parts paint, 1 part hardner ) with no reducing required normally but can be reduced up to 1 pint if needed ( for consistancy, not volume ). it will end up at just over 1 gallon spray-able material if mixed correctly.. 1 gallon should put 2-3 coats on a pickup truck

    a gallon will leave paint left over on 'most' trucks. true, that a CCLB would take a bit more than a RCSB, but a gallon should still be enough.. As per the Tech sheet, 1 gallon of Hotrod Flatz covers 532 sq/ft @ 1 mil thickness
