    Routing dimensional letters into pvc panels - outdoor installation. Panels are 3' x 4' w/shape. What paint would be recommended for best coating out 1st with roller. I was going to use 1-shot Chromatic Bulletin but their website cautions that this is intended for short term outdoor only. "Louie" on the 1-shot website says I should use their Lettering Enamel for coating out. This comes in pint containers - expensive way to go! I really need to go the roller rout so any suggestions for paint and roller type (foam best?) are appreciated.

    Yes, the 1-shot Chromatic comes in gallons/quarts but 1-shot says not to use Chromatic for long term outdoor - they told me I need to use their Lettering Enamel for this. Looking for an alternate paint to coat out with roller for best results.

    Just remember that PVC panels warp in hot weather and get brittle when it gets cold!
