i tried a few different mixes diluting the paint, and never came out as good as the straight paint, watched a few youtube videos but came out better with my own trial and error. i just made sure to change roller heads every 2 panels or so to keep it smooth, so far no bubbles or chipping and it has been a million degrees hear in nj everyday and it cooks in the sun
