What's the name of the shop? Do they have a website?

Thanks.

I think their name is something unique like "Aircraft Painters", or something like that. Call the FBO at KBFR and they will give you their phone number. I was just the escort pilot.

I've never been a fan of white, cars or airplanes, but my sports car is that same metallic pearl and that's completely different than "white".

I love that color but it's hard to apply well. That plane looks like the painter did a great job.

Ummm... that's a Glastar. Easily converts its landing gear configuration. Take your pick, tailwheel or trike. Maybe trike in the morning then tailwheel in the afternoon.

On the never-ending RV15 thread I've suggested that Glasair with the Sportsman has pretty much of everything that most folks have expressed on their wish list, except price point and "all aluminum and pre-punched".

That paint job looks terrific and the price point makes me wonder why I even tried to paint my own aircraft!
