silver911 Posted July 26, 2021 Author Share Posted July 26, 2021 At last...some genuine progress on the wings Front wing has been 'Metalized' using the C1 Metalizer...a couple of small imperfections...the largest of which will be covered by a decal...the others I can live with. PE end plates are in place...along with the PE mounting plates...and the PE supports...all the PE was heat treated as per my usual technique..... The rear wing was given a fresh sanding with an 800 grit sponge...which was done to assist with the colour split between the upper section and the main body. After again consulting with Malc2...he confirmed my suspicion that the top section was...in all likelihood...fiberglass...as opposed to the ali of the main body...as can be seen in this close up... You can also see the 'Gurney' flap clearly...and I have painted mine to match..... I re-heat treated the mounting plate as well..... Then it was a return to the re-prepped rear wing body. This now has the finish I had hoped for (silver)...along with the colour separation. Once the colours are fully dry...I will metalize the main body...and weather the white section to match the ref pic..... Still a lot more to do...bur a decent amount of forward progress made Ron to be continued............ 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
