Default Painting First Body, Need Help.

OK, I am painting my first body and I need some help. I am painting a Proline Crowd Pleazer 2.0 for my Revo. Some things I need to know are:

*How many coats do I need to do?
*How long do I let the body dry between coats?
*Will one can of Tamiya paint be enough for a CP2.0?
*I have heard of letting the can sit in warm water to pressurize the can, does this work?
*How do I actually paint the body? Lay it on its roof?


Some tips will help greatly. Thanks for any help.

*How many coats do I need to do? -------As many light coats as you have to do before you cannot see through it
*How long do I let the body dry between coats? -------No idea, depends on paint, temp, thickness, etc... Lightly touch it and see if it is still tacky after a while
*Will one can of Tamiya paint be enough for a CP2.0? -------Not too sure
*I have heard of letting the can sit in warm water to pressurize the can, does this work? ------YES
*How do I actually paint the body? Lay it on its roof? --------If left handed, hold it with right hand, however you feel comfortable. If right handed, do just the opposite.

Thanks xacdesigns. I appreciate it. Now I just need to find out if one can of paint is enough, and how long do I let it dry between coats.
