You will want 4-5 coats so that the dip comes off with ease in one large piece. I also recommend you watch all the tutorial vids on dipyourcars youtube channel. Swing by home depot, grab a can of black ($6) and spray something in your garage so you get a feel for it. It's idiot proof, completely reversible, and is very durable. I dipped my entire s2000 last year (will do it again this year in a crazy color) and have the grill on my Jeep dipped as well. Windows you just tape off with blue tape/newspaper/circulars, wheels are easy...just slice a garbage bag, and drape it over the wheels.
