It was sprayed using HVLP sprayer, wet on wet. I donít know about rolling. Itís possible that a foam roller would work, but Iíd get a small amount and test it first. If I were to try rolling, Iíd use a foam roller and avoid bubbles by trying to flush the air out of it by pushing it against the bottom of the rolling pan.

Great info, thanks so much! Hearing that others have had success with your method makes me feel great about it. Turns out we have a friend who paints houses who is going to do it for us. He has all the equipment including a tent to spray it in. Now that I know what paint to use I'm off to the store, then to his driveway!

While on the subject because Jack brought it up, I painted at OEM paint booth rental in East LA, great bunch of guys work there.

Anyway, they had Euro HVLP sprayers and it worked well, but before that, I used a purple Harbor Freight sprayer to spray rub rail with primer and it worked great too. Iíve read you can get a couple good paint jobs out of one of those.

Just wanted to plug OEM paint booth rental and the one good thing HF sells
