Default "Narrow" minded...

Very Cool! It's great to see a future "Narrow Deck" conical mount RV4. Mine was that way for 11 years before I sold the engine last year and went "Dyno"...

Smokey,

It would be nice; however, it's this little green thing called money.

Bill,
Very nice! Could you identify that interior paint and color please? Is it white or a light gray?

Default Interior Paint Color

It's just Van's gray (the powder coating color). I got the spec for the color and order rattle cans from the same company that supplies Van's powder coating (Cardinal). They will sell in a case lot (12 cans). I seem to remember it being about $52 for the case. 12 cans may seem like a lot, but I seem to go through it pretty fast.

Is that the A-4100 acrylic enamel from the touch-up products line?

Default Cardinal Paint Info

To all,

The Cardinal Industrial Finishes color code is A-4108-GR230. I bought 12 cans of air dry Acrylic Enamel. The cost: $5.05 (1 case). The minimum order is actually 8 cans.
Their phone number is 323-283-0335. I have spoken to "George" several times. Their website is: www.cardinalpaint.com
This paint isn't powder coating, but it goes on easily and it's easy to touch up!

Good Luck!

The RV-4 fuselage is just about ready to come off the jig and my wife is very happy about it.
