My question was/is, do you think what's on there will protect it from oil/dirt?

And since my original post, I sprayed another coat of primer...
Do I think what's on there will protect from oil/dirt? Nope, because there are visible voids that can trap oil/dirt.

How long will you be flying it before your paint slot, i.e. not at all; phase 1; 12 months? That may influence how much protection you need.
