Latest update on painting.  (I'm going real slow so as to not screw up.)

Last weekend I painted the canopy deck (section around the top) with the FS #37038 Black.







The last few days I've been applying the stencils for the Graphics.  I have some more masking to do and then I'll shoot the Graphics with FS #36118 Medium Gunship Grey.


I may have made the lettering for the stencil below just a bit too small. 

If you look closely, you can probably see that the little triangles in a couple of the "A" are a little askew.  Those pieces of the "A" turned out so tiny that getting them to stick as I peeled of the backing was a nightmare.  If I had to do it over again, I'd increase the font size about 20% - 50% which should make it easier to peel and get them to stick.

Well I can see some things that in retrospect I might do differently but all in all, I think it came out pretty well.





If you look really closely you might be able to see a hint of adhesive residue striping from the edges of the masking tape that I used to mask things off.  A little denatured alcohol and/or some touch up with a super fine scotch-brite seems to take it out.  I'll give it another day to make sure that the paint is super dry and hardened before I go over it.

Next, I will need to address the fine overspray in the interior.  That will require some light sanding with scotch-brite pads and maybe the alchohol.  I also need to build the floor, prime and paint it and install it in the bottom of the pit.  I also need to do some work in the Electronics bay to provide shelves for equipment.  After that, I can start installing Aux Consoles and the Center Console.

You know, I think I've seen a bumper sticker that says that.  "Overspray Happens"

Or maybe I misread it.   ;)
