Excellent job Jon. No-one will ever know. I don't know how you manage to achieve all this in that confined space....;)

You'd be amazed about all the things that have gone on in that space Phil ;)

All the spraying has been done outside anyway.

Thanks Pete, I never did finish this thread. Repairs are all done now, had to redo some of the lacquer after the white bled into the other colours for some reason. All finished and flown now though!

Are you saying the colour only bled after the lacquer coat was applied and did this require respraying or did the "bleeding" colour polish off.

No, rub down and respray unfortunately. In hindsight I might have gone too heavy on the laquer, so it settled and dragged some of the paint with it
