Without spray equipment, any strong recommendations for rolling on vs spray paint cans? Also, if I use a low sheen sealer, do I sand the paint before sealing?
possibly this won't be the end of the rabbit hole . . .
having said that - with all the excellent prep /sealing / priming you've done,
bite the bullet and go for the durtex, maybe just a the quart, - for now
a foam roller, 4" size is good,
take a few oz. of the d and cut it about 25% with water,
then in a room with no breeze or direct sun but good lighting, get a good quick coat to cover entire surface, 1 panel at a time
there may be some bubbles
give it a minute and then with the dryer roller LIGHTLY, like with no pressure except the weight of the roller, work it over again
depending on panel size, it may be better to work across the short dimension
and when working on the next panel, re-check your results
I've had some "practice' but it can be smooth low profile fine pebble finish like on a basketball.
much easier to keep clean, wipe dust from . .
the D'tex has that thermonuclear resistant feel, kinda like that plastic Costco uses . .
