    It took several hundred hours to paint this aircraft. 12 colors then cleared, sanded with 600 wet and applied drop shadow then cleared again. Also keep in mind, that all of the aluminum panels are painted inside and out which means that the plane has to go together and get taken apart many times. Not to mention the control surfaces, coves, canopy, cowling, etc that have to go on and off through the entire process. So in the end I think it took about four months to complete the entire aircraft.

    Thanks Clint,

    Sounds like you know the Proton inside and out. . . . . :big_yes:. That plane is simply phenomenal. I wish I could see it in person.

    Yep, I know it pretty well. Spent many long hours bringing that scheme to life. The client was truly awesome to deal with. He was willing to go all out on the project. I wish they all were like him.

    When I take on a car to restore for a customer I'll only do one for a guy that I think will get it. By that I mean knows what it takes to do a project like that. When you get the right guy it's awesome!

    Exactly. If someone freaks out over the cost of the paint and materials, its time to send em down the road.
