+1 just keep working it in everywhere. A good 4-5 decent coats will be more than enough!

When I did mine I did about 7 coats too but I went really light at first.

I don't think it really matters as long as it looks good at the end.

Something I've heard works better than the nozzle that comes on them is a regular little button type nozzle that'd on regular spray paint cans.

I haven't tried this yet so I don't know for sure .

Good luck!

I did 10-12 light coats on my intake waiting 15 minutes between coats, and it looks flawless. I didn't feel comfortable spraying 4-5 thick coats like the directions called for.

4 cans on the whole car? How many coats did you put on? And how long did it take you?
