[TowerTalk] How many cans of Prelube 6?

Its easier to remove the cables and spray them.  I stake one end on the
edge of the yard with the cable laying on the CLEAN concrete side walk. 
I'll lift the cable in my hand using a rag behind it to absorb the
overspray.  I walk backwards letting the anchored cable run through my
hands.  I keep a constant pool of Prelube 6 flowing over the cable as I
spray it into my rag covered hand.

I've also done this IN the tower and it is a mess.  YMMV.

I think I've decided on Prelube 6 for the new cables for my HDX572.
How many spray cans would I need and what is the best way to apply it
the first time? Should I spray the cables off the tower and then
install - or is that a mess? Install first and then coat?
