How bad are the roller marks? I would wet sand the 800 and keep rolling. Post a pic if you can.

i think your paint is still to thick i used 1 quart paint to 1 pint ppg med reducer to 1 pint of mineral spirits and the roller marks were gone on my 3ed coat. i also was still sanding with 400 on my 4th coat ; didn't use 1500 until my 7th coat

1500 is too fine for your initial coats. Start in the 400-600 range. You are going to have some roller marks, but if you thin it enough and roll it out smooth, it's manageable. The first 6 coats or so are just to build up thickness. 600 grit is fine to use. Once you get good coverage, then start worrying about the finish.
