There's no hair on a paint roller. It's called nap, and it's described by depth. 1/4" nap is commonly used for smooth walls. 3/8" or 1/2" nap is for more heavily textured surfaces. In your case, the nap is 4mm (about 3/16"). You want a very short nap for smooth surfaces. 4mm nap may still be too much unless you want some stipple. Consider ...

If you're set on using rollers, the one for the cabinet, short hair one, will be fine. Have you considered spraying? I would use a short hair one for the walls too unless you have heavy texturing. Long hair rollers suck up a lot of paint and when applying it to the wall, it creates suction which can pull existing old paint off the wall if you keep going over ...

Just a sponge will likely not do it. Try some mild detergent in water along with the sponge. Sometimes the stain will come off and other times it won't. You have nothing to lose by scrubbing harder at this point since the next step is to repaint the wall or the area that was soiled if it won't come off. A lot depends on the paint itself.

While leaving it just in primer for the long-term isn't ideal*, I can't fathom that the primer would fail due to getting a day or two of rain. Even the pros have to wait out rain days between a primer and top coat. Heck, they may even have to pack up in a hurry during a [primer|top coat] if unexpected rain suddenly appears. No, it's not going to be "...

Why do you want a clear coat? Do you want the hyper gloss and aesthetic depth that clearcoats give? Or do you just want a paint job that will last longer? Certainly the UV of the sun will give any epoxy paint problems. It will chalk and degrade from the UV. You should not randomly over-top any paint with any other paint, unless the manufacturer specifically ...

There are numerous brands of paint made for painting asbestos and you really need to use one on them. Just shop around and look for smaller quantities. These paints encapsulate the roof with a seamless coating, hence the long drying time, 10 to 12 hours. Normal rattle cans won't do that. Don't take shortcuts with this. Also, if it's such a small area, think ...

The only difference is that a red paint will "seem to cover" a gray primer somewhat more easily than a white primer. That is, it will take fewer coats to make it look good. All paints allow a certain degree of "print-through". That is, if you painted a checkerboard with 1 coat, you could still see the checkerboard pattern. That is just ...

My stucco guy says 1-2 weeks, depending on weather. (Warm and dry is faster.) If you have a chance, get a concrete-specific primer.

I'm just summarising the answer I got from Ed Beal within the comments, for future reference. When I was in the Air Force zinc chromate primer on the aluminum is what is used on air craft for the primer, there are many types , I found the self etching zinc chromate the best for aluminum then whatever paint you used stuck to the primer. I had an aluminum ...
