I was wondering if the silver lays down well enough to get a good look to it? I was thinking about using foam or low nap rollers.

Does anyone have photos how it looks?

The POR15 lies down beautifully even when applied with a paint brush, but I was pretty disappointed in the Stirling Silver top coat. Perhaps if you sprayed it on it might perform better, but I applied with the same type of brush as the POR15, and it didn't lie down well at all. I also tried a small foam roller, and the results weren't much better.

I used it on the bumper, and when I re-do the a-frame at the front of the trailer next year, I will still use POR15, but I will use some other top coat.

That's just my experience, others may have different opinions, and as always your mileage may vary.
