about to do the $50 paint job. tips?

alright well i'm gona paint my 85 toyota 4x4
the truck is my DD/trail rig.
Gona be using Rust-Oleum 9800 series epoxy paint, which is a two part that you mix so it hardens. I work for Kelly-Moore paint Co. so I get a decent discount on it heh.
It will be rolled on with sponge rollers on my truck which i prepped by sanding and will give it a good wash today before i start painting panels. any tips i should know of?

Oh yeah, color is gona be John Deere green
its fun being white in a lifted truck with bigass tires, now theres just one more thing for people to make fun of me for

your rolling paint on you rig? Neato..

If you were using normal auto paint I'd say use a fine grit sandpaper to roughen the surface but since your rolling it who cares right?

My brother's (93chico4by) Bronco II is rolled on oliver green. It's a little textured but only took about 2 hours to paint the whole thing and didn't require much masking.

Just roll and tip. No need to sand it:
