The first red coat (when showing) is a "telltale", that the (2) overcoats have worn off.

Yes; to achieve a build-up of 2 mils, using 3 THIN coats.
Vivid is applied in thin coats, using a 3/16” or less nap roller. Do not apply this paint in thick films or in more than four coats as poor adhesion may result.
METHOD: Brush, roller, airless or conventional spray.
When applying by roller use a short nap (3/16 inch maximum) roller cover
NUMBER OF COATS: 2 or 3
DRY FILM THICKNESS PER COAT: 2 mils (3.1wet mils)
