    Grams? If it's the same color probably not much. it'll also depend on how much sanding they will be doing, base coat, clear coat, how many coats is going to take and what not. Best is to ask them, if they end up with some left over, you can use that to paint other stuff, or as touch-up paint.
    Somewhere between a 1/2 gal to a gallon? I don't know much about paint usage
