how many coats?

Post by AtTheBrink »

I put the first real paint on the boat today. Coverage was excellent, color is nice and even, everything went smoothly. Now my question is how many coats should put on her? At this point it is all about building up thickness now isn't it?

If you can get it in two coats, and it looks good, then stop :) i would put at least two coats on before sanding out runs/imperfections
