    Is that paint lacquer base? I bet it is automotive quality from a spray can. Probably pPg he uses to make the cans up so I can see the cost of the spray paint.

    I am not sure Kelly if it is lacquer base. I can tell you that it is base coat clear coat. I was told the reason why it is so expensive is because they match the paint to the covering. Much to my dismay, I will probably have as much in painting as I do in the entire airframe once I am done.

    The amount I spent getting my ViperST cowl painted from the same person was a little to much but I have to say the colour paint was fantastic to use and the match was excellent, the only thing the primer sucked do know if I got a bad can or what but I just used a standard primer and everything come out great but yes the price is steep, but it seems he is The only option in town.

    Shot the white and will let it cure for a couple of hours. I'll unmask the cowl halves and put them on the 330 to check my paint line alignment. Then, back to masking tomorrow and we'll shoot either black or finish the green. Just not sure yet. Nice to know I have options. Lol.

    I'll try to post some photos later fellas.
