Prep'n the cockpit - Fill'n gaps and Painting
It has been an interesting journey to get this far in the project.
The left side of the cockpit showed some stress ware in the glass where the airbrake handle was. I sanded down the inside and prepped the surface to lay in a couple of plys of E-120 fiberglass.
The areas that were not intended to be painted were masked off with painters tape.
Then nose interior primed.
The finish is more glossy than satin.
I dropped in the seatpan to see if the masked areas were visible.
