I’m not a good painter. Which is why of course I decided to do it myself. However, I’m not really painting the aircraft, just patching and matching the donor tail. I installed some “curtains and I’ve ordered in some new LED flood lights, so at least I can see what I’m doing. I spent a lot of time cleaning up the H-stab which was reused from N3832V. There were quite a few dents and divots on the underside but nothing worrying. After lots of filling and sanding the parts are ready for Alodine and then paint.
