Re: Topsides going from 'White' to flag blue
I did a black paint job with roll and tip using Brightside. USE THE BRUSHING LIQUID! I didn't on the first coat and it didn't flatten out. I hesitated to use it as the day was in the 60's and didn't think I needed the thinning. Wrong. The second coat with the brushing liquid was gorgeous.
I was redoing a black paint job, not going over white, so you may need three coats. I did it alone too. I'd roll a couple of feet with a weenie roller and then tip, always keeping a wet edge.
I don't think you are nuts at all.
