Default New Paint Job!

Just picked up our RV-7 from the paint shop.

The boys at International Jets in Gadsden, AL did a phenomenal job turning my design into reality. The paint shop supervisor, Micah, was extremely professional, very consciences and went above and beyond to ensure that this plane turned out great. Needless to say, I was blown away by the end results and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Pretty! I'll bet she flies faster, straighter, with lower CHT and GPH.

Very nice. The curves on the tips have the wonderful effect of rounding off the Hershey bar look.

How much does one need to set aside for that kind of work?
