the same guy who’s going to paint the plane also does a lot of fiberglass and carbon panel work. I really didn’t like the flat black spray paint job that I did back 2 years ago (1/5/15). It was flaking badly and just looked like it would get worse. As part of the annual inspection, I elected to pull the entire panel and deliver it to him for a cosmetic carbon panel overlay. Getting the engine controls threaded back through the fire wall and onto the engine were the time consuming part of that project, but it does look much better!
