    Exactly what it says on the tin (post title). Looking at spraying my grille surround, fog surrounds and chrome 'fog light' bumper strips. A friend is looking at doing his too. Does anyone with experience know how much we would need? 1 can? 2 or more? Not being skint just would prefer to get it right the first time.. Cheers all!
