Hi Mark,
When I painted Minnow, I wet sanded in between coats with 320 at first.
After the second coat was applied, I could still see the 320 sanding scratches, so from then on I wet sanded with 600 grit in between coats.
Definitely wet sand, dry can be a sticky mess.
Your sand paper will last about 50 times longer with wet sanding. It may be me, but the old body shop guy in me just cringes at the thought of dry sanding.
I found with the roll and tip process that if I was not getting a smooth enough finish (brush marks) I needed a bit more thinner or brushing liquid.
The trick is to get the paint to re-flow before it sets up. Too much paint and you get a little run.
Unless you are painting a metallic color, don't panic, just lightly brush the run smooth with the brush tips and wait for it to dry then wet sand the run/brush marks out using a flat rubber block behind your 600 grit paper.
Good luck with the painting!

Thanks Happy Camper. I will go with the wet sanding and use brushing liquid to thin out the paint. I would post some pictures when done but it appears that Photobucket rules have changed. It looks like you can no longer post pictures to 3rd party websites unless you pay like $260 a year which is not happening. I will need to look for another picture site. Any suggestions?

Just finished second coat with dark blue Brightside. Brush and tipping working great with thinning with Interlux brushing liquid. Wet sanding between coats with 600 grit. Results are absolutely amazing. Picture does not look great as there is such a reflection on paint due to shine 😀.

Sorry about picture link trying to find new picture sharing site.

Hi Chris. I copy Link from the application and it is a link instead of showing picture directly. What HTML coding do you use to show picture in post?

Thanks Mark.

Cutout for porta potty I worked very well. Also added stick on LED lighting and it came out fanstastic. Can't tell from this picture but lighting goes underneath storage compartments on each side. More than enough LED's to light up cabin with very low power consumption.
