If you're writing for people restoring antique cars, they might like a
slightly old fashioned slant to the writing. Just a passing thought.

Another question to ask is, how obvious is the post-hence instruction?
Can additional cans of paint be assumed? Personally, I prefer to spell
out as much as possible. But leaving it out is an option.

Does the post-hence instruction prompt for more information? If so, it
might need its own sentence.

â??For lighter colors, you will usually need more layers of paint,
generally an additional %40 over your expected quantity of paint cans.
For white or pale yellow, you might need as much as %50 more paint for a
consistent finish."
