What brand of paint? Red paint is notorious for needing numerous coats, even with good paint.
More with lesser quality. It will probably need another coat..... or more......

Bold colors are tough to work with. They usually require at least two coats, unless you're painting over a very similar color.

"red paint/with primer"
How did I miss that? In my mind, I saw "2 coats of red over primer".... :laughing:
I guess I know what the problem is now for sure. 2 more coats should do it.... maybe....
