Turned Another Corner…

Turned a big corner this weekend and started the painting the accent color…

I started with the stinger and tail section under the horiz stab. This area I shot with U-Tech epoxy prime and then a single stage silver Imron to match the polished alum. I know no one will see it on the ramp, but it makes me feel good that everything is pretty.

After that, it was the boot cowls turn. Same grey U-Tech epoxy prime for starters, but then I went with a base clear. A ton more work, but looks so much nicer!

Even though I will be replacing the tips with the RMD’s when I do the Sportsman and WingX, I went ahead and shot the existing tips so they matched.

Plan is to paint the horiz stab and the top of the vertical red. The gear will be shot the silver Imron when I pull them later this winter. Wings will get stripped and painted red when I pull them in the early spring.

She’s coming along!
