One gallon of latex and a paint roller. How much did you spend on your last paint job? Not bad from 20 feet, but don't get any closer.

I'm thinking about doing the same thing to my 172, except in white. Latex is supposed to stick to aluminum really well, without the need for special primers. I was thinking about spraying it on. How smooth of a finish did you get with the roller?

I've seen semi trailers painted with a roller and house type paint

My fuse and tail feathers is latex I sprayed out of a harbor freight spray gun. I thinned it with floetrol and water. The previous coating was aerothane that had chipped away in spots. It's light, sticks to anything,'and UV built in. I wouldn't do it on bare fabric bit it works great as a temp cover over another system.
