Painting louvre doors

Any suggestions for painting louvre doors? I have several to do, and two of them need to be painted on both sides. I used to simply brush them, but thought a slim roller to apply paint, and then back brush to clean up. Spraying is not an option. Thanks in advance.

Wish I could say I loved painting louvered things and that I found the super easy way to do it. In all the years I found an angled sash brush to be the tool of choice. Of course you have to keep watching both sides of the work and you have to be patient. They just take time.

Wow spraying would be my choice but if you can't just watch very close for runs on both front and back it is hard not to get them with a brush.
