So, we got out early and worked out the worst of the contamination in the clear coat. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I had feared yesterday, so we got the booth nice and hot and started spraying clear again. This coat looks really nice, mostly glassy smooth. We’ll give it all day tomorrow to cure before we start sanding and buffing it out, but I hope to do that, get it uncovered, and get the door handles back on, etc. I’ve arranged space in the corporate hangar for the fuse while we work on the wings, so I’d like to move her later this week if possible.




Nice fit! And so shiny!

I’m hoping to have the paint done by Christmas, then we can install the engine preheater, door seals, calibrate the new GRT instrument panel, and do our condition inspection in preparation for rebirth. Check out the pictures. […]
