Fixing my Red Paint

Reds are the toughest, and cheaper paints can take 5-7 coats to look decent

Absolutely get some Aura for this one
Should be one coat over this, two absolute max

Fixing my Red Paint

I agree, red is one of the hardest to get to cover, but still not as bad as yellow. Maybe you "read" something on the can that said "Covers Most Colors in one coat" which we always get a good laugh at. Any drastic color change will almost always need 2 coats.
