Thanks that's good to know.... I will need 2-3 gallons of paint (might get by with 2 since I'm just doing the bottom half in the blue, based on 400 sf per gallon coverage estimate from Home Depot website) and was just gonna mix up the whole batch at one shot to avoid color differences.... I guess I could mix all the paint together to even out the color, then just add 3 oz acetone and 2 oz hardener per quart as needed into the roller tray.
I hadn't considered doing the wheels to match.... if there's any paint left maybe I'll do that as well.
I'll also be painting the stop sign over (leaving it on because I don't want extra holes to patch.) I wonder if I could find blue light covers to replace the reds on the sign.... just to be clear they aren't going to be used, just to avoid the clash of red on blue.
