Lynn finished up my painting last weekend. Feels great to get that behind us. As with most paint projects the prep takes all the time. Masking, cleaning, masking again (that paper didnt quite survive the cleaning!) and then shooting the paint took us about 5 to 6 days of part time work. Saturday I moved the parts from the painting hangar back to mine. Paint really turned out good. One of the main reasons for painting the bottom surfaces is that the polished finish deteriorates faster. The polish on the top and sides seems to last 3 times as long as the bottom. The silver paint will not be that noticable on the bottom. Now parts will start going back on and maybe flyable within a week!
