I myself feel mil thickness is more important than coats. That's something you only learn over a period of time and a lot of paint jobs. No two painters will take a gun and mix their own paint and go around a car x amount of times and end up with the same amount of paint on the car. Each painter has to kind of learn how much paint or clear it take to get what they want on each job and put on that much material. I know in my own case I put down different mils depending on if its a show car, daily driver or just a cheap make it shine for as little as possible job.
