    Hi I bought the paint from auto paints off eBay it's a direct gloss and it cost me £20 fir a 1 ltr and it's done my skits and 4 door handles and I've only used a quarter off the ltr tin so if I was u I would get a ltr if u have skirts and bumpers to be on the safe side if u have any left u can always keep it and use as touch up or when u end up buying somert else like we do at least u might have abit off paint to do it
