More coats?

Post by superslow on September 16th 2010, 3:25 pm

How do I know when I have enough coats of paint? I have read anywhere from 6 to 10 or more. I am working in coat eight now. I think it looks great, but wonder if I should go to 10. Would there be any benefit with more or less? Thanks!

It all depends on how thick you rolled it on.Very thin coats would take 10, thicker coats less. Try color sanding and buff a small area and see what happens. That will tell you real quick if you need more coats. Your call on the thickness of the coats.
