Only use this Rustoleum enamel. Do not use the acrylics, they dry to fast to level well.

Tape with this, it's expensive but very worth it.

Use a good brush.
2 1/2 inch or so.

Do it once, don't go back. Do a second coat, it will go fast.

Shade and no wind are your friends.

I am inspired by this info for my own refitting. I have closely looked at every picture in this thread and am amazed at the quality of your paint job that was done with BRUSH. I think my dream of a desert tan Sprinter Westfalia with a white roof may just have become a reality with Rustoleum Enamel.

PS. Love the woodstove too...nothing makes a place feel more like a "home" than a hearth
