Another social / short day, started with riveting a few of yesterday's bits. Arm rests and spinner plate among other things.
Then it was a bit of touch-up work for the priming and then onto top-coat.
Dad did the mixing and sorting again, I just did the spraying!
Most of the grey top-coat went on OK after we upped the feed rate the surface tension allowed the paint to spread better. The problem is if you wait slightly too long during a pass, the paint runs badly.... Practice definitely helps.
The days product, some of the 'detail' parts we've decided to paint black, not sure yet if the low gloss / matt will work OK.
