I had considered using a hardener, but decided on the Penetrol to make it smooth. Paint is quite glossy and will be better after the second coat and clear. I still have 1/2 gallon of Rustoleum and enough Penetrol for another coat, but maybe ill try the hardener on my next paint project.

Question Paint Prep

Thanks! It was my girls first time using a roller, and it was windy that night. There are a lot of curtains, bugs and leaf impressions in the paint, you just cant tell from 10 feet away lol. Some sanding and a second coat will make it look great. The Penetrol definitely helps to hide and smooth out brush strokes. We used the finest nape rollers we could find and a foam brush to smooth out the tough spots.[/QUOTE]

How much prep work prior to painting. Just enough sanding to de-gloss the factory paint or more?
I may have to the "roller" route too!
