How many rattle cans for a CJ5?

I'm building up a 74CJ5 backwoods beater and I'm trying to decide between a rattle can paint job and using Camoclad vinyl decals like I did on my last CJ5. It costs about $125 for the vinyl which comes out really well, but this is a budget build and I'm wondering how much I can save by using rattle cans. At about $6 or $7 a can, if it takes 10 cans, I may just go with the vinyl.

If anyone has sprayed their Jeeps in the past, how many cans did it take?

Thanks!!

Took me about 6 cans on my 74, cost about $60 for paint and tape.

I used 10 cans of Rustoleum on my CJ7, including full hard doors. I put it on thick and rubbed it out with a rag and rubbing compound. It turned out better than I expected.
