Sat 04 February 2006

A short day today with social commitments, but we managed to get a good batch of priming completed. Normal AllSol / scuffing process.
Then de-oxidine to acid etch the surface and clean an remaining contaminants.
It was still fairly early (pre-smoko (<10am) so the Otago sun drying was taking a little longer.
Dad did a large batch of mixing and then had to finish for social preparation.
I continued etching and drying.
Then it was into spray mode, back into a groove - getting better at judging paint feed rates.
Some of the resultant parts, mainly cockpit bits, but also some fuselage and spinner components. The wind then started to come up, so top-coat will have to wait for tomorrow.
