    RE: leo covering and paint

    I find that most of the CMPro colors match many Ultracoat and Oracover colors.

    You can always grab a bit of covering and head down to an LHS to find a match... at worst you can also take the covering to a hardware store and ask them to match it for paints.

    Don't get too sidetracked in trying to match colors exactly.

    I usually repair my planes using contrasting colors and then I'll even highlight the patches in some manner, mirroring the repair spots on say the other wing.

    So a puncture may result in my putting on a darker colored oval, or trim "sweep" over the puncture, then using trim tape to highlight the edges.

    The resulting patch looks like part of the original color scheme and thereby "disappears" so to speak.

    There is an art . . . to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
