Only 1 coat on the cooking chamber but i hit the trailer and firebox twice. I didn't thin it all that much, just enough to get the paint to flow a little better. I used a Campbell Hausfeld DH6500 siphon feed gun which i filled the cup and added about maybe 1/8-1/4 cup thinner. I prefer to use thinner coats and built it as i'm painting if necessary. I was a pain to get into all those areas but i probably would be tougher to try and brush it on. You know, the more i think about it i had some leftover paint in a quart container but needed more so bought another quart but i know for a fact i had some left over since i used some of that to touchup my woodstove in the fall. So it was around a quart used. The high heat is kinda thin to start with compared to other rustoleum enamels which required a little more thinning to flow properly. Don't forget that prep takes the most time so don't skimp.
