Fpvsummit how did you strip the paint off your body? I've seen people use liquid paint stripper but was wondering if that's necessary. Nice paint job also.

Thanks, glad you liked it......I used a paint stripper......."Nitromores", here in the UK. Then rubbed it down, coated the rust with "Curerust", which stops the rusting process, then added 3 coats of primer filler, rubbing down between each coat, followed by 5 coats of yellow enamel and after, lightly, rubbing down, 4 coats of lacquer. Took a while but I didn't want to have to keep touching in the scratches.

that's a lot of work but it definitely paid off. When you say rubbed it down you mean sanding?

Yes.......just very fine wet and dry sheets.........and lightly with very worn out abrasive paper with lots of water for the final rub down, then a fine rubbing down compound and polish for the final lacquer coat.

I'll have to go back and review the tapes of the surgery for some still photos.
