left wing, two coats on bottom, three coats on the top. I picked up a little dirt on the top. for some reason the wing was hard to paint for me. not sure if it is the orientation of the wing and crawling on the floor or that I am tired. I am beginning to see the end of the painting, right wing still to go and a couple stripes on the rudder. outside air temp = -4C. baking wing at 65F.

my first paint coat direction was airfoil cordwise and the second coat was spanwise. cross coating prevents paint striping effects.

edit: upon 12 hr inspection, it turned out well. I'm happy with it. no solvent pop. looks like glass.
