Plugs painted!

I had a lucky short break in the weather and got the plugs all spray painted with 2 pack glass paint. Two hours later, the wind was blowing, and now at lunch time, there was even a few spots of rain.
Anyway, it went very well, despite me confusing the reducer for the hardener! By the time I had added the correct quantity of hardener, I had the paint thinned to more like 50% instead of around the recommended 15%. It did not seem to matter as the paint went on very easily. Apart from some slight orange peel on the wings, the job is the best I've done anyway. It will polish up quite ok I think.

I improvised some frames to suspend the wings in for painting. They worked ok.

I used a supplied air respiration helmet and wore a spray painters coveralls. It was a bit hot in the mid morning 35 deg. C.
