Default After paint

Lots of good suggestions from previous posters, maybe use those to make a checklist. Take your time. Look at the attachments for everything that was removed and reinstalled. Control surfaces, wheel pants, spinner, canopy, cowling ect ect. Drain lots of fuel from the sump drains and fuel strainer if you have one. Ensure the air path to the carb or injector is clear of masking materials. Saw a close call once after paint when a adhesive sanding disc blocked the carb inlet on a Cessna 180. Do a good run up and maybe a local flight before shoving off for home. You might get that new lawnmower smell if there is any overspray on the exhaust. Be careful & have fun.
