The paint quantity sounds right, or at least it doesn t sound wrong, I can t imagine what the purpose of the “back roll” is. Did he say why that was important? BTW, don t forget to “box” your top coat paint. This is mixing the various cans together in case one has a tint that s slightly off. The way I ve always done it was to start with 2 cans and mix them together and start painting. Then after the first gallon was used up, mix the 3rd can with the remaining one from the opening effort. Continue to go that way until finished. If you buy too much primer, you can probably returned the unopened cans, that might be true of the top coat unless it s a custom tint.

Yes, I am familiar with mixing the different cans together to avoid variations in the final color. I plan to get one 5 gallon bucket of the Loxon primer with 3 other gallons of the same Loxon primer. I will try to keep mixing the single gallons in to the 5 gallon bucket as I go. I will do the exact same thing for the paint. Thanks for the advice man!
