Brief Description:  Panel Painting

Plans:
1: Continue painting the panels.
Status: I applied a second and third coat of primer to a couple panels. I had to stop as my roller deteriorated and began to ruin the finish. I also was able to paint the lower cowl blue (Bay Mist) where it joins the other panel.
2. Fab a breather outlet for the crankcase.
Status: Complete. I routed a breather line from the top cover of the Engine to the bottom of the engine compartment. I terminated it with a homemade "whistle tube". The whistle tube has a hole drilled into it to provide a secondary exit should the main outlet freeze. Interestingly there seems to be some debate on whether the tube should point into the airstream or away. Mine points down. The concern is that excessive oil might drain.
