It would be really hard to apply upside down. It take a lot of work to push the product around. Nothing like rolling paint on. My recommendation for you would be to tip it on it's side and do half. Then tip it on it's other side and finish it.

If you remove it to the alluminum should you use an etching primer?

No, not with steelflex. The product has no problems with adhesion.

1 gallon should be enough. The pigment is the coloring added.
