Don't get your feet wet.

I have been going between the T Craft, the 2.7 Extra CS and the 3.1 Extra this last week. Got some time while in the shop to mount the vertical fin, start fitting the turtle deck and work on the hatch.

I shot my latest CF spinner (SMJ) on my Raven with Rustoleum rattle can and was impressed with the shine. Had better luck with it than Krylon.

We did the cowl on my big orange 41% pitts with the Valspar paint and primer and it is amazing how well it matched to monokote orange.

The biggest suggestion I have is take your time in prepping the cowl, the paint and body shop that painted our 3.1m did a great job of matching the colors we are using but a horrible job on the pin holes, thankfully most of them are on the bottom of the cowl and stickers should hide the rest.

Thanks for the suggestions you guys.......
When I get back home I will take some color samples of Ultracote to Home Depot or Lowes and try to match up some paint.
Is it recomended to spray any clear over the top coat ?
