I'm no expert but your going to want to spray back and forth until you have an even coat without a lot of the paint building up because that causes runs. Let it dry and reapply several coats.

so pretty much the first coat doesnt have to completely cover the whole part im spraying? but then the additional coats should add on to completely fill the whole part? i think i tried adding too many coats the first time thats what caused paint buildups.

Im no painter, but i heard that you dont want to let each coat dry completely before adding the next coat. I've heard that doing so will cause wrinkles, you could also probably try using Google.
