Arietta 17


With the primer sufficiently cured overnight, I began in the cockpit and sanded all surfaces with 220 grit by machine and hand as necessary, smoothing the primer to prepare it for the next steps.

With the deck areas sanded, I moved on to the hull, sanding all areas with 220 grit paper.

I was pleased with the primer and the resulting substrate in all areas.  Coming up next:  Cleanup, inspection, and fine filler application on pinholes or other areas requiring additional attention before finish primer.  But for now it was time for Christmas break.
