Could you please share: What did you find out regarding what sort of paint and the price of it? How many coats to get the thickness required?

One coat of paint as far as I know. I haven't yet purchased any as I won't have a chance to use it for a week or so. I'll be sure to post an update and pics when I get it done.

Same here. Our basement contractor (who's done dozens if not hundreds of sprayfoamed basements) says it's a real crapshoot with inspectors. Given that sprayfoam is new, they're all confused about it and have differing opinions.
