To the first answerer, spray paint does not come in quart cans.
As far as yeild, it depends on the condition of the car, and the paint itself.
It is possible to paint the car with one quart of automotive paint. That's if the car is completely free of cosmetic imperfections, and you are painting it the exact same color.
If you are changing colors, look into getting at least 2 quarts, or a gallon. The car has to be taken apart (doors, hood, etc) to get everything. Or else it is gonna look stupid when you open the door, and the old color is inside.
If the car is real crappy and you don't want to spend a lot of money, I recommend Coronado Rustscat oil-based industrial coating. I've painted agricultural equipment with this, even motorcycles. It is much cheaper than auto paint, and a lot more forgiving. You can even spray it if you cut it with Naphtha. You will have to go to a real paint store to get it, not Home Depot. They will mix it to any solid color you like. It takes a long time to dry, but it covers awesome.Source(s): Painting cars
