Icon5 Painting Tonneau

There seems to be NOTHING on the net about how much paint is needed for a tonneau. I got a good deal on one, but I'm having second thoughts with the price of paint. I'd like it to color match my silver frost.. but I don't know. It's a hard top fiberglass snug top?

4 coats, but how much did you have? a quart? I want to shoot it myself to save money, and to get the right paint mixed be expensive, the cheepest I've found is automotivetouchup.com @ 50.00 a quart .. before primer, clear.. sand paper...
