Re: paint how much etc

it will look dodgy if you just spray the effected parts.
Paint will fade by up to 20% over 7 years and if it's a holden even more.
To keep the same colour about 4lts would be fine but to change to another colour (and do it properly)
you would need 6lt.
To just do the boot, bonnet and a few small patches about 1.5L but Like I said it will look dodgy.

Breathe! It's only the internet....
