Thank you for sharing your rolling and tipping paint results with us.
How many coats of paint did you apply?
How much paint did you use?
What primer did you use?
What equipment did you use?
Did you use any specific finishing techniques before primer (such as the Cory Bird raw epoxy technique)?
Can you make paint repairs using the same techniques?
Thanks! Your EZ looks really great in the photo... hope to see it in person!

Yes indeed Art, and the previous mentioned Pettit and West Marine's own SeaGloss are two of them. Also, Bob, using these paints, and the rolling and tipping process mentioned, my finish IS equal to spray jobs done by my local aircraft painting people at the Canandaigua Airport. They have admired the job I did on my plane using West Marine's SeaGloss and rolling it on.

If I am not mistaken, there are paints, including 2K urethane that are formulated for this process which tend to flow out more appropriately. Temperature of application is critical in that hot temps tend to "dry" the paint quicker and give you less time to adequately tip.
