            Silver has got to be one of the more challenging colors to put down.....really makes you work on your spray technique.

                  60 watt soldering iron and a modicum of courage for "cutting out" the elevator servo and stab attach areas.

                              Fitting the front windshield and decided to upsize the Cabin support tubes to 8mm from the 5mm rods that were provided in the kit - checked my full size Citabra and it has 0.750" tubing ....so 40% would be 0.300" and 8mm is 0.318" .......plus the tubes are roll wrapped so you can see the Fabric , instead of the the Pultruded version.
                              Of course, masking off the instrument panel area for a coat of Flat Black.
