    Looking to see what others have had success with for painting ACM panels. I have access to most quality paint brands and decent facilities (we don't have a spray booth, but have access to one). Looking for advice on a few facets of this:
    1) Substrate (brand, factory coating...)
    2) Paints used with success for longterm outdoor signage
    3) Application method used (airless prayer, auto gun, roll, brush....)
    4) Key tools (tip size, pressure, roller covers...)

    Thanks in advance for the advice!

    Scuff surface lightly with scotch brite type pad; clean; roll or spray latex acrylic house paint or DTM (direct to metal) paint. Been doing this for over 10 years and it works well.

    We sheet with vinyl when possible...when not we scuff (very important with ACM) and spray with auto paint/acrylic poly.
