Default paint it

i am painting my jeep Cherokee with a beautiful chalkboard paint and i am using a paint sprayer so i don't have to go back and buy a bunch of spray paint but my question is would a quart work in this scenario so far i have sprayed the hood with spray paint and it looked nice and i ran out of room to draw on account of all the ***** drawn on it...-_-

I'd have to say it's pretty obvious. Lol.

Why paint it with that paint? Is it even made for exterior use let along autos?

o the paint yes i have seen it done a few times to some cars and it looked real cool so i wanted to try it and i would have to guess that if it lasted on there cars it should work on my jeep right?

On a serious note - I highly doubt that chalkboard paint will hold up to sunlight, weather, scratches, etc in an auto platform. Especially if you'll be doing any wheeling. Durability is king.

On another note - This is entertaining!

I personally wouldn't use chalkboard paint. But to each their own!

As far as amount - For the whole Jeep with good coverage and several coats, probably closer to a gallon. But I've never worked with chalkboard paint...on a vehicle...before...

Be sure to post pics if you do it. I'd like to see what it looks like.

I wouldn't recommend it but hey if you like *****'s being drawn all over your jeep by your friends then go for it.
