    I'm envious, nice set up. Looks like this isn't your first rodeo.

    I have been playing with wires on aircraft ever since learning the basics at NAS Millington back in 84
    Be careful with them magnifying things it seems that the more you use them the more you really need them

    Got the Paint booth together Now I get to spray some Paint
    I seem to have a hard time with dust. I guess I just need to clean better before spraying

    Start fan on high an hour before painting, the turn fan down during painting(moves dust before you paint). Fast fan should have moved the dust. Also hang parts vertically or top DOWN(good side)

    I think I need more fan to do that. The fan I have blows in through the filter. Maybe I should have one blowing out also
    I'll try it

    My suggestion is to not use a table like that. You will be blowing dirt off the table onto your component. You will never pay as much attention to cleaning the adjacent table as you do the component. Put them on trestles with the edges of the component clear of the trestles. If you do use a table, new paper for each painting session.

    Hanging is better, like Mike said, but might not be all that easy with a temporary booth like that. And then as it bobs around on the wires as you spray the component, it shakes the dirt off the ceiling and onto your job......

    More fun with Paint

    And thanks for the advice I have added another Fan so now I can push 10,000 CFM through the paint booth on Hi and that seems to clear everything out.
    The table is gone and I am trying to paint everything vertical if possible.

    Now I have a Wing in the Booth
    My first go around with the Stewart Paint system Seems to be working for me so far.

    I was thinking of adding another stripe with some color just behind the Black leading edge but the more I look at this the more I want to leave it as is.

    I have found that a 1/4" stripe separating the black and white or whatever your two colors are enhances the look, adding about a million bucks to the visual wow value. An alternate method is to leave 1/4" of the base light color separating the dark from the stripe. The third color should be a tone in between the two major colors which sort of softens the difference.

    If you do do this you will be saying to yourself "WOW am I ever glad that I took the extra time!".

    It doesn't sound like much, but it makes a big difference.

    If you look closely at the pictures of my 185 you can just make out the third color which is a light blue. https://www.supercub.org/forum/showt...mphib-For-Sale
