Depends on the effect, for some flips you only need a litre, others you need about 2... If you want a really crazy effect then you need more... All depends.

It depends on the size of the car and the type of paint...

Using a corsa as an example.
If the car was an normal every day colour ie a solid or metalic... you would need 2-3 litres of basecoat... we usually always go for 3, this allows for 3 heavy coats over the car and all parts.
If its flip paint then you could still get away with 3 litres... but in our experience 4-5 litres is best as this paint works on a, the more you use the better the effect basis.
