Brief Description: More Polishing and Painted Steps
Finished polishing the right side of the fuselage today including the right gear spring. Looks like 4 passes with F9 is going to do the trick. I'll try a fifth pass in a test area to see if it makes a difference. If not, I'm moving on to the left side.
I also took the time to paint the steps which involved sanding the steel step assemblies to a nice shine, spraying with undercoating then spraying on black gloss paint. Should be ready to assemble after a couple of days of drying.
Right side after 4 passes of F9 Nuvite NuShine II.
Did 5 passes on the right spring gear. Surprisingly shiny for such a roughly-grained piece.
