May 2012 Gettin’ my ride ready for the LLT fly-in!
I’ve been dreaming about a new spinner for my Rans S7 for months and I can’t tell you how excited I am about finally getting the job done! Boyd and I have way more hours invested in planning, sanding, taping, more taping, and painting than I ever dreamed possible.
It still needs a little work but it turned out pretty darn cool.
My “vanilla” spinner was painted perfectly but seemed like such a waste of space – it need a little pzazz! But it wasn’t just the spinner that needed attention, the top and bottom cowl had seen better days and were in desperate need of a touch up.
Painting the spinner came in 3 steps…
Then we taped it and sprayed the white. Sorry, no picture though.
It had to dry overnight which was a painfully long time to wait to see what it would look like!
I’m in love!
There are a few spots that need some dry sanding but for the most part it’s done. Of course, the hangar’s a wreck since we’ve been almost living in it for a week – probably time to vacuum (i.e. take the leaf blower to it again). Love my hangar gas grill! It’s been grilled brats and turkey burgers all week, lots of peanuts,Â Frito’sÂ and diet cokes! Rule of thumb…. if you’re in a hangar, all junk food is legal. Diet when you’re home!

I can’t wait to see it live!

Your Rans is looking great, Judy! Can’t wait to see it in person! And around here, it’s not “junk” food, it’s “hangar” food, so it’s legit. No diets allowed at the airport.
