O.K. So the sprayer thing didn't work out so well. I was not happy with the finish I was getting. When it got to the point where it was putting down a nice even coat, I was getting orange peel.

So, we changed plans. Now we're going to brush the panels before installing...I'm sure it will look just fine...

It sounds to me like you got to close with the sprayer but brush and roll looks just fine.

Probably. We also had a problem with the sprayer. The pickup tube kept falling out the bottom of the sprayer head, and then the gun would sputter like crazy. I finally got ticked off enough to just give up.

When my friend came over to help move the vanity, he offered to come over with his HVLP system and spray the rest of the panels with me. Might be all I need to get my own HVLP system
