Over the winter some paint lifted on the top of the inboard left wing section. It looked like hell so I planned and planned and planned a bunch of different ways of fixing it.
Since I don't have the equipment nor do I know how to HLVP or even use a regular paint gun I went to the local paint supplier in town (Rondex) with a handful of paint scabs to match the colour.
The provided a can of white primer and two of colour.
After much prep I painted last night with some friends, I am the guy in the background of one of the pics with the concerned look on my face and eyes closed :). It turned out better than I could have hoped and will be better tomorrow with coat #3.
I spent about $70 bux taxes in. :)

All the pictures are in my album.
