Default Painting my rv6

Hi everyone, figured I would start a thread showing progress on repainting my rv6. I bought this rv6 a couple years ago after selling my rv4. It sat outside for a number of years and the paint was dull and had a few chips. Overall it just needed updating and after deciding to modify my wingtips for new led wingtip lights I decided it was time to paint as well. I have been prepping the plane foe the last couple weeks and finally got the fuselage done this last weekend. It was very time consuming and spent 27 hours between Saturday and sunday painting and laying out everything. I am pretty happy with how it came out. Still have to wet sand some dust out of the clear and lay another layer of clear down. All the paints are metallic with one 3 stage paint. Will post updates once the wings are done. Heres a before and a few after pics.
