I did about 3 to 4 coats just to lay it on thick, you want to wait at least 30 minutes in between coats. you want to start out swiping across laying the paint on slowly spraying 12 to 16 inches away from area being sprayed doo not rush or it will give a gross bubbly look which you dont want what you do want is a powder coat type look at the end. When pealing tape off make sure you have waited at least 45 minutes. Score the line of the edge of the tape for a nicer more crisp edge and a better out come. After you feel comfortable and like the out come of the eyelids i threw on after i was finished with all the rims and front.
