Rolled on or sprayed

Looks awesome. So that's rolled on, not sprayed?

Yes, I rolled the product on with the roller that is supplied when you purchase the product.

that looks great im actually getting ready to do this to both tub and the hardtop , how many coats is that ? and how much paint did you use ?
im told the tub doesnt take a full gallon so im wondering if the extras will be enough for the top

About the weight of one and 1/4 gallons. I'm guessing this stuff weights about 15 pounds per gallon. so maybe 18lbs.

Two coats on both the inside and outside? I'm planning on using bedliner on the outside of mine. Probably just paint the inside of it.

Looks fantastic and it's been about a year, how is it holding up? Question, I notice they recommend sanding the paint off when working with metal but how well does this adhere to fiberglass? Was there anything that you did that you would suggest to someone taking on the same project?
