Could you tell me what paint you are using to get that mirrow finish and where to buy it. What spray rig do you use. You ought to make a video. people would pay to know your process.

It's done!

Ok, I got my RL-E back from Alvaro and his workmanship is even better than before. The blend lines are really smooth yet the white over the stock red covers completely. Here is a iPhone pics from my first flight after receiving it back from Alvaro. I will get some better ones soon as I must have touched the lense with my sunscreened hands.

Either way you look at it Alvaro does exceptional work and if you crash or hanger rash your plane, it can look new again for a fraction of the cost of a new one.

This paint job only added 4 grams of weight!

Great work Alvaro!
