Like I've always said: full coverage is full coverage and it's the only way you'll achieve true color and consistancy-period. Repairability can be a real PITA if you're dealing with a job that was not sprayed to full coverage especially if it's over an undercoat that's way darker or lighter than the color itself.

Do your black and white test panel like Mike has shown, count how many coats are needed for full coverage-that is the minimum number of coats you should apply. If you find your paint needs 5-6 coats for full coverage then FIND A BETTER PAINT LINE
