ow. Long day, this. It was a pretty day, but we spent it slaving in the hangar. We started by double-checking the mask (so of the tape didn’t like getting wet from sanding the blue), and then spraying. We put a good coat of white on the roof, using blue foam to keep from denting the strakes while kneeling on them. Let that coat tack up, and then respray it. Then do the same with the rest of the fuselage, spraying the cowling, dog house, and cover while it tacked. Then we waited an hour (OK, we really ate lunch) and then hit it all again (within the recoat window) so we could pull the masking up tomorrow without having to sand in between.
