Question proline raptor body for yeti. how much paint?

Just bought a new proline raptor body for the yeti. Got x-acto knife to trim the excess lexan. Still need paint. Using tamiya lexan-safe flat black paint. Anyone know how many cans (3oz) it will take. Thanks.

How many colors are you planning on shooting? Unless you want a multi-color paintjob or a metallic, pearl, or candy single color paint, you should be able to get away with one can.

I prefer Duplicolor Spray Bedliner with the blue label for a backer if I'm looking for durability. Makes the body heavier, but adds density to it as well as opacity to lighter colors too.

I'm a basher, so weight isn't a problem for me in most cases.
