Paint Question

Ok, I want to get started on fixing up the old farm truck. I want to paint the bottom section of the truck like Ford does their two-tone. How much paint should I get to do this? I am going to use a two-part paint and as I remember the base color went a long way. I'm thinking a quart per side. That should leave me enough to paint the bumper and grill or am I way off? Here is what I am painting the bottom of.

[IMG][/IMG] I'm thinking I can do that bottom line down with a quart of base.

A quart per side is nuts. I had my whole bed, tailgate, fender flares, and 05 bumper trim painted with one quart. You'll need maybe a pint.

Well thanks for letting me know my mental state. I will get a quart of base and a quart of clear then. Thanks
