The paint goes on...

The weather provided us with a break and stayed reasonably warm with low humidity. With that weather window, the paint went on today, Monday, March 16th.

I showed up to pretty much to observe how an expert sets his tools, what good techniques are employed and to see the art of shooting AwlCraft. It was really interesting and extremely informative. Charlie explained everything he was doing and why. I stayed out of his way as much as possible.

So after three coats of AwlCraft 2000 in a custom grey color, I am really pleased. There were no problems or mishaps. The paint went on perfectly. Charlie was done by 1:00 PM.

So, to the pictures.

So, we closed shop and made sure no-one went in and ran their grimy hands across the paint.

So, another big project item that is on its way to being completed. Taping and painting the sheer and boot stripes will be next.
