I used small ones since my paint job was two colors. I also used cheap foam brush to get hard to reach corners the foam rollers couldnt get into. Dont go cheap harbor freight ones. Get the ones from lowe's or home depot that are white. The more dense the foam is, the less likely chance you will have bubbles on the painted surface.

Here is a clear and concise video of someone doing it. I really like examples how you can tell if you got the paint to mineral spirits ratio right:

Since rustoleum doesn't have an endless selection of colors, will automotive paint work the same? I realize that it will cost more, in fact, the cheapest I've found was $50/qt. any one have any recommendations as far as brands that do allow it to be tinted and hopefully cheaper?

Just did my race bodywork a couple of weeks ago. With the same tin I did my last bike with. So that means it's now only a $20 paint job on each bike. WooHoo!

What experience have people had with color matching graphite? I'm planning on doing this soon.

The colours are very basic and not designed for vehicles, so I'd say you'd struggle to get a match. You need to do the whole vehicle. I bought a second hand dented tank for my track bike and painted that and the race bodywork so it would match.

Didn't do any buffing after painting. I just use Mr Sheen furniture polish to clean it.
