    Crap.... I'm shellacking first... 
    How many coats are normal when applied on newly cured filler??

    I've always shellacked first - my thought is you can paint over the shellack but not so the reverse - if there is a need to correct the waterline. I've just started spraying and it makes a very nice finish. Just be careful as it runs very quickly if applied to heavy.

    Four coats applied... Looks sorta ok.
    How many coats would normal for an initial application?
