Painting Suggestions Concerns for PC-5's
« on: November 15, 2020, 08:01:49 AM »
Hi I am planning on painting the PC-5's and just wanted to make sure I didn't screw anything up. Any suggestions or concerns for prep and things to avoid?

Painting is no problem.  I wouldn't use harsh solvents on the chokes prior to painting, as that may remove the varnish that's applied during production.

When I finish them, I will typically rub them down with steel wool and alcohol to get them clean, then I spray over them with black lacquer and let them dry for a couple of days.
