You didn't have to color sand? Looks pretty slick and glossy, esp. for rolled-on.

Nope! The only thing that was sanded was the epoxy primer. It certainly would have looked better had the color coats been sanded, but at the end of the day, it wasn't that important. Epifanes suggested that the chemical bond was more important than a physical (i.e. sanding) bond any way.
