How many reranch aerosol cans of surf green will it take to do a strat body. It will be sealed and then primed with BINS. Oh, and here's a poll just for the heck of it.

One can should be plenty.

Plain or crunchy.
Neither --- I can't have peanut butter any more. Evil or Very Mad

I just got done spraying my Tele body in Surf primed with BIN's and it took 1 can, including re-spraying a couple of thin spots.

I agree with 1 can. It covers real well, but really take a close look at it because its hard to see any light ares with this color. You kinda go blind to the white after a while. Inspect it thoroughly after it dries and maybe shoot 1 more coat for assurance. I know I did after I thought I was done but upon inspection I noticed I had some fine areas that you could just barely see some primer through it.

Thanks all for the input. The surf green thing started when I asked my wife "which of these colors do you like best?", and she chose surf green, and then I thought, "heck she should have a strat of her very own so I'll do this one and give it to her." Miracle, too bad on that PB situation, not even real PB with no trans fats? I have a whole thing going with blood pressure, not bad just a concern, so I've been doing some nutrition study on the whole fat and choleterol subject.

With primer, I can get up to 3 guitars out of a can of reranch opaqe lacquer. I have gotten 4 guitars out of a can of reranch blonde, and I swear there is stioll 1/2 a can left. A nitro color finish should be as thin as possible, just don't sand until you have a few coats of clear over the color coat.

This guitar is the 3rd out of a can of Daphne blue
