Cockpit - how to protect surfaces
I'm getting ready to start work on the fuselage in the next few weeks. I am super close to running out of my current primer (Stewart EkoPrime - has worked great), so need to order something for the rest of the build. EkoPrime is great, and would be completely fine on anything that's not going to be abused, but on its own I don't think it's a good choice for cockpit surfaces that will be handled a lot.
A few options:
- buy more EkoPrime and use it on everything, but also buy paint to top all cockpit surfaces for durability
- buy a 2 part epoxy primer to finish the build and leave that as the only surface in the cockpit, assuming that would be durable enough (?)
I don't really know which surfaces to worry about. My plan is to have, at a minimum, side panels and front cockpit carpet.
