Interior Colors

I’ve decided on these paints colors for the interior.

Structural Elements – bulkheads, ribs, stiffeners, angles, brackets, accents, etc. Rustoleum Professional Dark Machine Grey or mostly in my case accents get dark grey, center tunnel & covers down the center get dark grey, etc.

Skin/Sheet Elements – skins, flat sheet metal panels, most of the exposed areas, etc. Rustoleum Professional Light Machine Grey

Other Items that are Black or need to be black – most instruments come with flat black bezel, the vents I have are black, but probably could get grey, the glare shield is usually a dark color, possibly black or dark grey.

Painting

Here is what I would like to do for painting. Quite a few parts on the plane end up being new, unpainted. It is only the fuselage that would need to be stripped & re-painted.

So, if I can do it, I’d like to build a long paint booth, big enough to take the fuselage on a rostisserie. Design and build the rotisserie so that it will handle a fuselage or a wing. Then prep and paints new wings before mounting. Prep & paint new empennage before mounting, prep and paint the fuselage before final assembly, prep & paint fiberglass pieces as necessary.
