    Thats a tough question to answer.

    The tins I'm working on now will consume just under 16oz of mixed 4/1 primer giving 4 good coats sanded between the 2nd and 3rd coat. sanded again, then it will consume about as much mixed base color doing inside and outside. top and bottom. Then about 8oz mixed clear. lightly sanded again. Then about 4oz mixed of silver for under the stripes, then about 4oz mixed for each color stripe. Then about 4 more coats of clear consuming about 16oz mixed more.

    your results may vary

    Depends on what base coat it is (some are reduced 2:1 and some are reduced 1:1), what color you are spraying, what color you are spraying it over, and if you are using a sealer or not. If you do it all correctly, you can generally spray a tank with about 1/2 pint of base (when reduced you'll get closer to a sprayable pint). But that is JUST the base/color coat....

    That website is confusing as hell. Talk to them, but if the red is the primary color and it's a tri-coat, which it sounds like it is, you'll need the metallic silver base (a pint will be plenty), and then probably at least a pint of the candy red top-coat. In addition, you'll need whatever bases and top-coats will be required for your stripes, but in much smaller quantities, probably .5 pint of the graphics colors.

    You don't need to buy clear for each one. Just buy enough clear for 4-5 coats (done in two steps of 2-3 coats each, with several days and some 600g wet-sanding between the two steps) When it's all said and done, you'll probably use 1/2 quart of clear. Chances are, you could use about any clear with no problem, it doesn't have to be theirs....

    The red uses a white basecoat if I remember correct last time I sprayed it.

    That website suggests a metallic silver base, I assume for the red? Who knows. I'd agree however, by looking at it I'd say the OEM ZRX red uses a white base, not a metallic base....

    Re: a blank canvas

    The white or silver would serve the same purpose on the non-candy red.
    To lighten the primer for better, more even coverage.

    Like trying to paint a black house with a single coat of white...as I always say.

    ooooooooooooo
