Last of the pics until I get into the moving in process. The 18 inch roller really lets you rapidly get the coating uniform. Wolverine recommended a 3/8 to 1/2 inch lint/shed free nap. I used the 1/2 inch and it worked great. It is important to not exceed your reach with the roller when you are laying out your strips. The second picture was taken when we were half way through the color coating and mixing the last batch of color. The last picture is of the finished floor (clear applied just as the primer coat except we spread using the roller only which worked fine.
