OK, I finally got to spend a bit of time at the bench this weekend coupled with being in the right frame of mind to have a go at the checker cowling on the Mustang.
So, step by step, this is how it's progressed.
This is how we left it on Jan 2nd.
First job was to mask off the half way point of the yellow area, and then mask of the second row of "squares"
Mask over the front area and spray the red checkers onto the second row.
Masking off, halfway there
Then comes the easier part. Marking out and masking the front row of checkers.
And after a good check to make sure everything lines up and is burnished down, a few mists of red.
Off with the masking,the cowlings see the light of day for the first time in nearly 6 months and the 357th FG red/yellow cowling band is revealed.
I'll let the paint cure overnight and then seal it in with a coat of Klear.
See you for the next installment,, whenever that may be
