    Thanks!

    Note to future builders, you might seriously consider using another paint other than the PolyTone on your metal parts. Works fine on the fabric, but terrible on metal (i.e. tank covers, lift struts, etc). Even with a PPG primer coat the PolyTone doesn't want to stick.

    Did you use the bulldog adhesion promoter on the metal parts or did you just spray the polytone on primer?

    No. I thought that was more for nonprimed surfaces (plexiglass, carbon fiber)?

    Just don't hit it with a pressure washer! Some local guys have had good luck spraying it over dry primer and others not. Time will tell! It's beautiful so just enjoy it!

    Congrats! Looks beautiful. I am doing the Builder Assist FX program and will pick mine up the 3rd week of Feb. Does yours have the new flaps and tail?

    Absolutely beautiful. All that extra paint really stands out.

    Thanks, Gary! You got me started - you definitely sold me on CCs. Can't wait to get back up and get some great adventures.

    No, I took delivery of my kit last January. It's just an EX.

    They put a new tail on it too? I know the EX-2 has the new aileron and flaps.
