Paint brush to cut in top and bottom roller for smooth surfaces. Takes around 5 or more coats a quart is plenty I did three tanks and still have some left.make sure paint is dry between coats or you will peel sections of it off a fan helps dry quicker. I used satin finish put roller in plastic bag for it don't dry out between coats. You could tape off top and bottom to avoid paint on frame.

Is there a certain type of paint that works best?
