Default How do I increase coverage w/Parma fasfluorscent

I'm painting the inside of some home made petg mCPX canopies and its taking a lot of coats to get a decent look. Would I be better off skipping the extra coats and giving it a coat of white or some other color to reduce number of coats (trying to keeping the weight down) needed to get a satisfactory finish? I'm open to any and all ideas Thanks!

a couple thin coats , then backup with white , i assume "inside out painting" , lexan /clear plastic. always do your dark colors first!! for lining type paintschemes, obvious reasons when you put black over white when inside painting.
they really dont have a lot of pigment in them , they are hard to cover with, "outside painting" with them you really have to have a clean white base.
if you can find the createx brand flourescents , tehy cover much better , essentially , the same paint. check out the "auto air" colors too.

When I was painting RC Car bodies, I always backed up some colors with silver then white and some with just white. I've also heard of some using gold to back up some colors. It can give a nice metallic paint job.
