Primer coat being applied

252Q's Extreme Makeover is well on its way now. The airframe has been cleaned and prepped, Alodine as been applied to all surfaces and today they started applying the base primer coat.

NOTE: Pay particular attention to how smooth the wing finish is... And this is just the primer!

By the way, here's a photo of a brand new $650K Mooney Acclaim that was being painted when I dropped off my Mooney...
And 252Q form about the same angle:
Not much difference is there?

252Q is looking as good as a brand new plane that costs 3x the price, yet she's almost as fast, she's Technically Advanced, she burns 1/2 the fuel, and her maintenance is less expensive...

Looking good. Must be a hard wait with all the anticipation and such. Hope the special paint is all you want it to be. I am going to drive to San Marcos just to see you and your plane go home. Or better yet, hop over to Kerrville, let the factory take pictures of 252Q, come eat at my Steak House, then go. :) David

The excitement is building... If all goes according to plan, 252Q will be finished in about three weeks. I do plan on stopping by Kerrville to see the factory and grab a steak...
