I used a color called, "River Rock." Didn't use any primer. Only lightly scuffed the the surface as already mentioned by the previous poster. I ended up using 5 cans (about 2 good coats). It's only a few months old, but it's holding up with no problems, so far. No clear coat for me. Didn't want the shine.
I went with the two-tone look because I wanted to be able to see the Jeep profile with the hardtop on. I felt it gets lost when everything is the same color. The lighter color also cut down the radiant heat significantly. Some like everything the same color. Personal preference, I guess.
