    i got a 4lt tim and still have just under left, but depends on how you put it on and how far up the van you go. i have a berlingo too!
    but alway good to have some spare.

    i wouldnt buy the kit as it is a waste of money really, just use any rubber gloves, can use any paint brush,
    all you need in the paint

    with my van i ripped out all the wood paneling and painted all the metal its the metal that need the protection. then re fitted all the timber back after treating with a timber stain.

    the water will run off the timber onto the metal then could rust the metal, at least if the timber goes it is cheap to replace,
