That is a fabulous job!

Did you happen to do a before/after weight comparison? I didn't on my -6 but wish I had... it's also base/clear, but only 2 coats of clear.

One problem I had with painting my -6 was transferring the scheme from an A3 (letter)-sized AutoCad drawing to the full-scale airplane. I solved that by projecting the scheme onto the airplane with an LCD projector, which worked really well. I just applied tape along the projected lines. From that I made paper patterns, which I could use in the booth as well as on both sides to get symmetry.
