    Finished sanding all the bog back ready for another go at high build. This time it went on a lot flatter. I wound out the fluid nozzle more and added a little more thinner.

    After sanding through the guide coat with 400 wet and dry it highlighted a lot of stone chips and other imperfections.
    So more bog.

ID:	7125374 Hopefully it gets rid of the hash pattern surface from the carbon fiber which you can see through the high build below.

    After closer inspection in the morning it was clear I needed to get better access to the panels for good edge coverage.
    So the plan going forward is to break the spraying into half batches.
    The re high fill coats won't be any trouble as I shouldn't need to do all of them again.
    The colour I will split and do the headlight cowl and tail piece and 1 or 2 other pieces. Then the rest in the second batch.
    Back to sanding.

    I immediately saw that more filling and sanding will be needed.

ID:	7121706 Most of the panels looked ok with one huge run in the headlight cowl air vents. Trying to get coverage everywhere inside the duct led to too much on the outside.

    Next step was to give the visible surfaces 3 coats of high build filler. So I set up all the parts after several hours of filling and sanding.

    I thought I would try and hide the yellow on the non visible areas and have a trial of the gun. So I set up the tank, fairing chin piece and tail unit.
    The gun I chose is an iwata air gunsa as it came with a 1.8 and 1.3 nozzle and tip set.

    ​​​​Wipe down with wax and grease remover, then hit it with some colour.

    Reasonably happy with the results.

    done something very similar before with 25x25 tubing. put brown paper on floor and wet it before painting - catches all the dust

    The duct is put through the top windows and connected to the fans outside.

    To break the monotony of sanding, filling then repeat I thought I would start to knock up the spray booth.
    I have a 5.5 X 5.5 shed that I try to keep everything off the floor.
    The plan is to create a ventilated habitat within the space.
    So I cobbled together a light frame from excess fencing materials and got some 100 micron plastic.
    Shed space.

    One fan blows, and one sucks.

    It's a repco branded multi purpose that is good for "most plastics".
