Re: COZY: picking up from paint - what to look for?
I. N. Briggs
I had a similar problem painting the numbers on the Varieze. I initially used a single stage paint. The paint was thick and when it started to cure, it pulled a sloppy swoopy mess along the edges of the Nnumbers.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I waited a day then sanded everything back to primer and started over. This time I left the tape on until the paint dried. This time the paint came off in chips and left with a sharp jagged line.
So I sanded off a third time and changed paints. This time I used single stage white to paint the base. Then I used basecoat to paint the numbers (brown and orange). After painting the basecoat, the template came off easily and left nice clean lines. I then lightly sanded and used a clear coat over the whole winglet not just the number. So far it’s working.
The. I went to the Bahamas in April. CBP didn’t like my numbers at all. So I used orange tape and made new ones!
