I've been using 3/4 for a while and I like it, so I'll continue using it

Just wanted to say, thanks everyone.

I still have not figure out if I will or not use primer, but see as it goes. Part of the repainting is to redo lighting/fan & crown moulding, so it may depends on how tired I will be....

Sorry Vadim, reread your orig post and can't see how I missed the Bath part of the Aura. I walked around the other day looking for my phone for a few minutes, then realized it was in my hand. So, missing bath is fairly insignificant in the scheme of things. Anyway, unless you have bare substrate, you really don't need any primer. Good Luck, keep us posted.

Chris our love of 3/4" nap roller covers will meet at some point.

For me it is part the sound I guess. Rolling nice quality paint from a 3/4 nap cover sounds different than that horrible noise thinner roller covers make.

You will try one on cabinet doors, with poly tossed in....someday.

Could you post your home address. Some of my Asian American friends just want to show up and make you some tea. I promise they only will ask you to qualify the concept of using 1/2 nip. They will leave if, in person, you just say typo.

Chris-san. Having tea made for you is very spiritually enlightening. You will not be hurt.

a surface should always be clean, dull and dry but priming is never a bad idea then you know you will get max adhesion and make sure the primer will stick to glossy substrate.

Although you don't need it, if you want a better job that is going to last much longer, I would recommend using primer before you add your two coats of paint. The color will also be more accurate if you put down primer before adding your desired color.
