Priming nearly complete

Leah and I had a good easter weekend and got a little work done this afternoon and evening on the cherokee as well.  We started the last two cross coats on everything with the white EkoFill.  It went pretty well really.  I'm using my gravity feed HVLP gun for the rest of the painting and it took me a little while to learn how to use it again.  The gliderport has a nicely capable air compressor which is great.  I didn't have any real problems i suppose until the end.  Turns out I apparently underestimated my need for the ekofill and ran out when I was about 3/4 finished with the last wing. 

So currently the fuselage and one wing are completely primed while the other wing needs a little more work and the other control surfaces all need one more cross coat which won't take long.  Tomorrow I'll check and see if it will be OK to finish it up with the gray ekofill or if that will screw up the tint on my topcoat.
