Welcome. Search around here and read up on rolling. If you feel up to it, get a test panel and start to practice with tips and ideas you can find all over this forum.

Good luck.

Less labor if you spray, just make sure you have the right equipment for it and local ordinances will allow you to spray at your location. California has some pretty strict laws on such stuff. I did paint a car during the Winter, but only applied paint on days that air temperature was above 50 degrees.

I've sprayed outside in the fall at around 40 degrees and everything came out ok but the paint took forever to harden. I would not want to try it again at that temp. I would think 50 would be the very least but it can be done. The only good thing about the cold is no kamazi bugs Laughing .
If you can spray its a lot quicker and a lot less work. Of course the prep is the same.
