The inside has been sanded with 320 and masked off for final satin black.

The inside of the tail has been painted in the time between these two pictures. Devo, the new kid, is fine lining the black so I can paint the silver Friday.

Now, the inside is completely masked and the bottom is being sanded with 500 grit sandpaper. Remember, you use nothing less than 500 for Glasurit base coat/clear coat.

The tail has been flipped and sanded with 500, but Tropical Storm Arlene has brought the humidity to un-paintable levels. If it was non-base coat paint, I could pull a paint job out of my magic hat, but in this case, the clear coat could present problems with blushing.

I'll try again tomorrow morning.
