NLGI 1-2 and moly grease

Since I'm throwing lots of money in rebuilding the front axle I will try to do it right.
I told the mechanic that he should use molybdenium grease on the CVs and king pin bearings and multipurpose on the rest.
The only one that he has is a Repsol grease lithium based rated NLGI 1-2.
After reading 8sCool archives I suppose that this one will do for the wheel bearings but I'll have to buy myself some molybdenum disulphide grease.
So around Europe any brands that you could recommend.
Sorry to ask this but in metric units exactly how much do I need.
Thanks

Joaquim,
Don't know about actual quantities, but if you're buying it in standard
grease gun sized tubes you'll need at least two tubes per side, the castings
are a lot bigger than I thought inside.
Hope this helps,

Thanks Neill
After a more careful reading of the archives I've found a post by Jon were he warns about moly grease. Apparently the trade off is moly is good for friction (CV) and bad for rolling (bearings). To simplify things and avoid problems due to the mixing of the two types of grease some guys like Norm use just one high quality grease for bearings and CV.
So now my dilema is should I try to find some moly grease here in Portugal? Or just try to find some high quality one for the whole job. Jon are you listening?
The quantity according to my conversion should be about 1.6 kg (would that be 4 tubes?).
I have to solve this one during the two weeks parts waiting period (new birfields, ring and pinion and several bearings and seals)
Thanks
