If it’s straight clear and hasn’t been reduced yet it should be. But that depends on the amount of reducer that the manufacturer recommends because that determines the amount of sprayable material you end up with.

So that should give you a gallon and a half of sprayable material. That should be enough depending on how many coats you wind up doing. Less than a gallon of clear (before hardener or reducer) was needed to do my ‘78 El Camino and that included a front air dam, front bumper, ground effects and rear roll pan in addition to the body.

If you are going to cut and buff, be careful wet sanding and buffing clear to a mirror finish will remove quite a bit.
