5mm (~.200 inches) are you lucid?My thoughts exactly.
How many cans of paint is that, exactly? If 2 gallons is needed to just cover the primer, then....figure like 8 at the least?
Then weight =(% dry solids)*(weight of 1 gal paint)*(num of paint cans)
=0.60 *9*8=43.2 lbs vs 10.8 lbs for the minimal job.
I mean, an extra 30 lbs...
Update these to your numbers by weighing a can of paint and get the %dry solids off the MSDS.
