Alright urethane is the best choice now for quantity it will vary depending on color, brand, mixing ratio and how you spray it so that said you want about 2 Qts of spray able material, I would suggest you take the car or a sample of color to the paint shop so that they could match the color better there are a lot of variables in color, hope this helps

And other materials include sand paper tack rags laquer thinner for cleaning your gun, mixing cups etc and of course your reducers, activator or whatever you chosen paint and clear need but the paint store will tell you that
